Finance

Introduction
Please note due to the great demand for our programmes early applications are assessed when received and dealt with promptly. Therefore it is advisable to make early applications for an early response. If you do not yet have your final degree results this will not hinder your application as we are happy to issue conditional offer letters in such circumstances.

Applications are invited for this intensive one year full-time programme for finance graduates wishing to pursue a career in the financial services industry or a career in the finance function.

Entry requirements

Applicants should have an honours degree (II.2) or higher with finance constituting a major part and will be assessed as to their general suitability.

Note: Due to the considerable competition for our postgraduate programmes satisfying the minimum entry requirement is not a guarantee of a place. Depending on the programme of study applications will be assessed based on your academic grades and may also take into account your work/life experience. Applicants may also be required to attend for interview for specific programmes.

They would also be equipped to carry out econometric analysis in a research support role in a financial institution. While most students are expected to enter the programme with a view to launching a successful career in the finance industry, others may wish to use it as a stepping stone to later obtain a PhD.
