Course content

This programme is aimed at students with a strong interest in financial trading in integrated financial markets. You will focus on trading and the behaviour of global financial markets through the use of an on campus simulated trading floor, which provides practical exposure and hands-on experience in the art of trading.

In addition to the many reasons to study at the London Campus including; our focus on employability; our location in the heart of the City of London; our work experience opportunities; the personalised attention we dedicate to students; our industry links; our industry trained Teaching Fellows and our top rankings, here are a few other reasons specific to this programme:

  • The programme can also help to prepare students for the Financial Information Associate (FICD) Certificate, recognised by the world’s leading financial information companies;
  • Students can gain exposure to a technology-rich fully simulated trading floor, mirroring a top investment bank and Bloomberg trading software
  • Students will have the opportunity to also acquire a Bloomberg certificate.

Throughout the programme, you will work with expert teachers and industry professionals to develop the relevant skills to research and understand the industry, develop the skills and knowledge employers are really looking for, as well as get tailored support on how to start your career even before you graduate.

You will be assigned a personal tutor who will be able to review and discuss your progress and offer advice throughout your studies. You will also have access to a wide range of additional support from our free Spotlight workshops designed to support the development of your study and research skills as well as enhance English language skills if English is not your first language.
