Learning Journey


Workshops are 3 or 4 days long and are delivered remotely by our experienced tutors. All our trainers have passed our Train the Virtual Trainer programme to ensure that the content is engaging and interactive. You will be given plenty of opportunity to apply what you have learnt as there are knowledge checks and quizzes throughout. You will take a mock exam on the final day to test out your knowledge and you’ll have the opportunity to review your answers and ask any questions you might have.


Exams are taken remotely in the week following the workshop. This means you can take the exam from the comfort of your home, at a time that suits you best.


Once you have passed all four BCS certificates you will attend a group coaching session to prepare you for the oral exam.

Oral Exam

You will discuss your Business Analysis experience and what you have learnt over the course of the programme with two examiners. This lasts 50 minutes and is virtual. A pass means that you are awarded the BCS International Diploma in Business Analysis.
