Material availability

Our CIMA, ACCA and CFA study material is imported from BPP in the UK at the beginning of each semester. The cycle updates for some courses follow the UK academic year (which starts in the middle of the year), as opposed to our academic year which runs from January to December.

Material for our ICB courses are produced locally, and are updated at the beginning of each year.

Because we always send you the most up-to-date material, there might sometimes be delays while we wait for the updated material. 

It is important to note that we will always use the information from your booking to determine when to send your material. 

If you would prefer the current 'in stock' material to be dispatched to you instead of waiting for the updates, you can let us know once you have made your booking on 0861 111 411, or by emailing us with your booking reference number at info@ibtc.co.za.

Alternatively, you can check out the cycle updates below for further guidance on when new material is usually available.

While IBTC reserves the right to only dispatch once all the items in your order become available, we typically try and get you studying as soon as possible with the bulk of your order.

All 'available' orders are shipped via courier free of charge.

 


Cycle Updates

Cycle updates refer to any changes or revised versions of the study material within the same syllabus. The CIMA and ACCA syllabus is updated approximately every 5 years, while the CFA and ICB syllabus is updated every year.
