The University of East Anglia (UEA) has joined forces with the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII) for students looking to develop a career in the insurance and personal finance profession. From September 2020 onwards, the Norwich Business School’s undergraduate and postgraduate students in finance will only have to pay an academic rate to study for CII qualifications.

The academic rate is around a third of the amount charged to employed insurance and personal finance professionals for the same CII qualifications and professional CII membership will also be given to students for the duration of their studies.

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

UEA has teamed up with the CII to provide its students with a pathway into a career in the insurance and personal finance profession.

Yifan Chen, programme academic at UEA, said: “We are pleased to team up with the CII. This is a great way to encourage students to develop a rewarding career in financial services and the insurance sector.

“Norwich is recognised as a centre of excellence in insurance, financial and professional services and our students could have new opportunities to engage with local professionals, mentors and employers.’

Sian Fisher, CEO of the Chartered Insurance Institute, said: “The CII is partnering with modern, employability focused Universities and Business schools to highlight the variety of career opportunities for graduates in the insurance and personal finance sector.

“The opportunity enables students to embark on their professional studies and to complement their academic work helping them stand out to prospective employers.  We are delighted to have agreed the new arrangement with the University of East Anglia, which demonstrates our joint commitment to attracting new talent to the profession.”
