Dear ICB My name is Rizwana Badat. I'm a self-motivated, driven individual currently working as a logistics manager and junior bookkeeper. I have tried to further my career with the ICB and successfully completed two courses. But due to financial constraints, I am finding it really hard to realise my… Read more »

Dear ICB My name is Thembisile and I'd like to thank you for your consideration. I am pleased to get this opportunity to apply for an ICB bursary. When I finished Matric in 2012 - and knowing that I wanted to study a financial or accounting field - I thought… Read more »

Where to study

Study options to suit your lifestyle

Just finished school and can’t wait for campus life? A working mom with lots of ambition, but very little time? On a mission to study intensively and qualify in just six months? Or maybe you have a longer term plan to study on the side while working full time?

Whatever your situation, there will be an ICB study route that works for you. We have over 500 accredited training providers (colleges) across southern Africa – find one nearest to you.

Three ways to study your ICB courses

1. In a classroom

  • Studying full time at a college. Most school leavers opt for this route, because they aren’t working yet or tied down with too many commitments (lucky them!).
  • Studying part time at a college. If you’re working full time but really want to gain a qualification, this is a great way to study. Attending classes after hours can really increase your options if you’re already employed, but looking to upskill and increase your job security.
  • Video studies at a college. If you can’t always make scheduled classes, some colleges have the option of letting you watch pre-recorded lectures. Instead of attending fixed classes, you can book viewing times with your college.
  • Exams are held monthly at classroom-based colleges. Just check with yours when they will be holding an exam for the subject(s) you are interested in.

2. By distance learning

This is the most flexible and affordable way to study, while still getting support from a college. Your distance learning college will send you the tuition material you need for the courses you signed up for. Distance learning students have access to the college’s helpline and support structures. You work through the material yourself, at your own pace, wherever you are. At the end of your course, you’ll sit your final exam at an ICB Exam Centre nearest to you. Exams are held 5 times a year, in February, May, July, September and November.

3. Independently

Independent (private) self-study means you have no access to tutor support from any college, the textbook publishers or the ICB. You can do the work at your own pace, but you have to get hold of the course material yourself. If you have any queries about the work, you’ll need to find someone in your own network to help you out. 

The ICB does not encourage this study option.
