For a limited time, you can save 20% (or £100) when you buy 100 RICS Academy Coins. If you’re working towards your APC, this is great news. So what are Academy Coins and why is this a big deal? 

Academy Coins are a useful way to help make your learning budget go further. You buy them upfront, and then use them to purchase any online RICS course when you are ready to so.

The more coins you buy, the more upfront discount you receive - thus rewarding you for learning through the Online Academy. They are also a fantastic option for organisations looking to allocate their training budgets because the coins can be ‘transferred’ amongst colleagues.

As an APC candidate, you can do a lot with 100 coins. Choose from a wide range of online courses available to support you at every stage of the APC process.

Below is an example of how you could make the most of this offer if you were on the Quantity Surveying Pathway. For other pathways simply tailor the Competency Masterclasses (highlighted in bold) to suit your competency choices.

Remember, although you pay for the coins up front, it doesn’t mean you have to use them straight way. As you go through the process you might discover there are particular areas where you need to focus your learning so take time to plan out what’s right for you. The coins can also be used to purchase online technical courses too, including RICS distance learning.
