In order to gain the Diploma from the Institute, students must pass six exams: Part 1 (A & B), Part 2 (A & B), and Part 3 (A & B). The exams are held annually in June/July and September and there is no time limit set between the three Parts. Following successful completion of all three stages, students will qualify for full membership and be entitled to use the letters MBIG (Dip).
At the discretion of the examiners, exemption from taking Part 1 or Parts 1 & 2 may be granted to someone who has already completed an equivalent course of study in graphology, or holds a qualification that is recognised by the Institute. For an Exam Exemption information pack, click here.
