What will it cost?

We've itemised the cost of taking the CIA

When you study the CIA, the mandatory costs comprise application and membership fees, the CIA learning system, and exams. Revision workshops are optional. The figures below allow you to compare the price with and without workshops.

The tuition costs are based on IIA workshops and assume you will pass first time. Tuition and exam fees are payable as you go – you won't have to pay the entire cost up front.

Because the CIA is an IIA Global qualification, the application and exam fees are payable through a US-based candidate management system. These fees are priced in US dollars, as shown below, but we have also converted them to sterling so you can see the total cost at a glance.

Membership of the Chartered IIA is compulsory

You must hold membership to study the CIA. If you're not already a member, the current annual subscription fee is £196 and there is a one-off membership application fee of £135.

How much will we invoice you for when you join?

When you join as a student member, we will invoice you for membership and the CIA Learning System. Join today and the cost will be £955 (£851 + £104 VAT).

Please do not raise a PO for the full amounts shown below. We cannot invoice you for exam fees – these must be paid to IIA Global direct.
