Course content

This 12-month, full-time programme has been designed to prepare students for advanced level employment or doctoral research in the fields of Banking and Finance. The quantitative orientation of the programme will provide students with the technical skills needed to undertake independent empirical research and achieve a critical understanding of current theories in banking and finance. The core and option modules cover a very wide range of specialisation areas from which students will gain a thorough knowledge of the most current developments in the global financial markets.

The School of Management and the University of St Andrews have been listed as the Best in Scotland in a variety of current publications and in particular, we have consistently come out at the top of the annual student satisfaction survey, which means that our students are relatively more satisfied with their learning environment than at other comparable universities.

Information for international students
