Exam Centres

CIPS exams are held at our approved exam centres and these can be in a study centre, British Council office, college or university, or a CIPS regional exam centre venue. Types of venues vary from country to country and are available all over the world, all you need is a suitable environment, an invigilator and approval from CIPS.


    You can apply to become a CIPS approved exam centre at any time. All applications are presented to an independent panel for approval and can take up to 6 weeks to process. Please allow enough time for approval if you aim to open in time for a specific examination session.
