Our completely bespoke delivery system is super streamlined and easy to use, so you can access it on your smartphone or tablet from practically anywhere, any time you like.


Our Story

VIVA was founded by Thomas Newman, (hi there!) a previous CIMA student tired of average quality, overpriced tuition. Thomas knew that higher quality content could be produced more efficiently, and he’d hit upon a formula that allowed him to pass seven exams in a nine-month period — all first-time passes! The VIVA team uses some of these same insights to deliver streamlined online study solutions. We work hard to continually improve our tools and content quality, while maintaining groundbreaking price points.

How Do We Do It?


How can we offer premium CIMA tuition at such groundbreaking prices?

Unlike several other traditional, brick-and-mortar tuition providers, VIVA Financial Tuition was born entirely online. We started out with a small, dedicated staff of CIMA tutors, and created a highly streamlined online delivery system. Because of this, we have been able to keep our costs exceptionally low, while still delivering premium quality content. We have thus grown rapidly, reaching thousands of CIMA students with premium resources at groundbreaking prices. Over the last year, we have leveraged that growth and reinvested heavily in our learning platform, allowing us to create the most complete, high value CIMA study solution on the market in the form of All Access. It's our way of rewarding our students' loyalty, and the first step in fulfilling our vision of making premium CIMA study content accessible to ALL CIMA students worldwide.
