To enrol in CFA Level I you need one of three requirements: (1) a bachelor’s degree (or equivalent), (2) be studying for a bachelor’s degree (your Level I exam must be no more than 23 months before your graduation month, which is just after the end of the first year of a three-year programme), or (3) have 4,000 hours of professional work experience, not necessarily finance-related, before you register for the exam. You will also need a passport and be prepared to take the exam in English. You will not be able to enrol if you live in certain regions under US sanctions.
