  • The online application is now available - click here.
  • The deadline for submitting an Access Scholarship application for the 2018 exam cycle is 15 September 2017.

You must wait until the scholarship notifications occur in December before you register for the applicable exam, or you will be ineligible for the scholarship and your application will be voided. However, you may purchase the curriculum for that exam in advance by contacting us. When you register for the exam (after scholarship notifications) credit will be given for the eBook curriculum purchased in advance but credit will not be given for a print curriculum purchased in advance.

If you receive a scholarship and register, you must sit for the exam in the relevant exam year awarded or you may be ineligible for future Access Scholarships.
