The course is designed to provide you with expertise in international finance and enable you to pursue a career within the finance profession. As well as the strong disciplinary base in international finance, you will draw on other cognate disciplines including accounting, quantitative methods and economics, and so be able to work with specialists in other areas and present findings and analysis to non-specialists. The course is open to people with no detailed prior knowledge of international finance, although this is desirable.
As a postgraduate finance student you will have access to a significant resource in the Financial Markets Suite, which uses the Bloomberg computer system to monitor real-time financial market movements and trends. It’s a resource available to very few UK universities, and one which provides a modern and progressive teaching environment combining finance theory with practice.
You should normally hold a first degree from a recognised institution (minimum Lower Second Class Honours), or international equivalent, in accounting, economics or business studies, and preferably an adequate study of finance. Alternatively, you may have any other UK Honours degree (minimum Upper Second Class) or international equivalent and preferably an adequate study of finance. Exceptionally, non-graduates may also be considered if they have extensive, relevant work experience. You must show that you have the commitment to benefit from and contribute to the course, and the ability to pass the course modules. If English is not your first language, you will need an IELTS score of 6.5, with a minimum score of 6 in each element.
