Validated postgraduate courses

As an alternative to The Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme exams, we maintain various dual-award partnerships with UK universities. These postgraduate qualifications cover the same core content as The Chartered Governance Qualifying Programme and may offer fast-track opportunities and exemptions for students with relevant experience.

When you join a university programme, you should register as a student of ours; this is the first step to becoming a member of The Institute. As our student, when you complete the university programme, you can then go on to become GradCG. This means that when you gain enough relevant work experience, you can apply to become a full chartered member of The Institute.
