Working with Universities
We work with universities across the world to develop risk management qualifications and recognise prior learning, research risk-related topics and deliver courses.
We work collaboratively with a number of universities to accredit their programmes and recognise prior learning.
Recognition of prior learning for university graduates
If you already hold a risk management qualification, you may qualify for exemptions to some of the modules on the International Diploma in Risk Management, thereby accelerating your journey to full professional qualification.
If you are exempt from Modules 1 and 2 (equivalent to the International Certificate in Enterprise Risk Management), then you may apply directly to become a Certificate Member of IRM (IRMCert).
Recognition of prior learning for IRM graduates
Arrangements are in place with the following universities to fast-track IRM diploma graduates (GradIRMs) through their master’s degree by awarding credits for the IRM diploma and reducing the time taken to complete the programme.
Birmingham City University - MSc Risk Management
Glasgow Caledonian University - MSc Risk Management
Portsmouth University - MSc Risk, Crisis and Resilience Management
Free student membership
Students studying risk management at undergraduate or postgraduate level can apply for free student membership while they are studying.
We work with universities on risk-related research projects to raise awareness and help organisations and individuals to build risk management capability.
Qualification development partnerships
We work in partnership with universities to develop qualifications.
