CII works with university to broaden talent pool

​The Chartered Insurance Institute has teamed up with Glasgow Caledonian University to help their students take additional qualifications that can kick start their career in the insurance and financial advice professions.

The university's undergraduate and post graduate risk programmes are already accredited against the CII's Learning Qualifications framework.

In addition to this prior learning recognition, Glasgow Caledonian University (Glasgow) undergraduate and postgraduate students will now have the opportunity to gain a CII qualification at a reduced academic rate.

Glasgow Caledonian University (Glasgow) students can extend their studies by taking additional CII units at the academic rate, which is around a third of the amount charged to employed insurance and personal finance professionals.

By paying to study for a CII qualification students will also become members of the CII for the duration of their studies at the university.

Membership of the CII gives them access to local institute networking events, mentoring schemes and career support.

Glasgow Caledonian University (Glasgow) is the latest of several universities to team up with the CII to provide their students with a pathway into a career in the insurance and personal finance profession.

University of East Anglia, Coventry University, Blackburn College, Manchester Metropolitan and the University of Gloucestershire already offer their students access to CII qualifications at an academic rate.​
