“Great service and lots of support at this difficult time. The tutors are really enthusiastic and want to help. They love difficult questions and have the skills and knowledge to answer them quickly. Contact has been easy and regular catch up’s have been better than before the pandemic!! Special thanks to my tutor David Malthouse for all the support!!”

“I’m currently studying CIMA. I have found using FI Online for some papers has really helped me manage my studies at Operational Level to ensure I could sit my Case Study in November. I used FI Online for E1 so that I could study at a time I wanted to and then attended FI Classroom courses for P1 and F1.”

“I used FI Online for several papers at Certificate Level in my ICAEW qualification. I found it brilliant as I could practice questions online to get ready for the exam and also, when learning the basics, found it helpful to study in small chunks and to go at a pace that suited me.”

If you think using different ways to study could benefit you but aren’t sure where to start, we’ve produced some example qualification pathways to show how it can work for each qualification.

Course lead well, when I was ill for revision quick to change me to live online so I could still be there. Facilities are good, easy to get to.

Sophie Rothwell, ACCA

I found Amanda engaging and really useful at top tips for approaching the exams. I would recommend first intuition’s classroom taught course.

Charlotte Murphy, ACCA

I’m very grateful to the tutors, who even though it was an intense course found the time to answer our questions and offered to help us via email/phone if they didn’t have time to answer a question in class. Would highly recommend first intution and will definitely be back in future!

Always happy to help and flexible to suit the student, which is greatly appreciated when you’re trying to balance work commitments with study.
