What Is a Banking and Finance Degree?
Studying banking and finance will give you an in-depth understanding of the way organisations and financial systems operate. You will be prepared for careers in private banking and finance as well as central banking and regulatory agencies. You can elect for a BA or a BSc, with the latter requiring a more rigorous use of mathematics.
What will I study?
You will focus initially on the fundamental areas of economics, banking and finance. You will be provided with a foundation in both theory and current practise, and you will develop the analytical, quantitative, research and communication skills desired by the leading employers in investment banking and financial services.

The first year will provide you with understanding of the basics of finance and the way financial information is both reported and used. Mathematics and economics will be studied in detail to ensure you have a thorough understanding of the basics in order to expand your knowledge and skills base.
The second year will introduce you to modules in banking systems and commercial banking. A module in commercial skills will encourage you to develop your commercial awareness and group-working skills, and you will be able to select from a wide range of additional specialist modules which interest you.
Your final year will require advanced understanding of banking and finance through modules in investment banking, risk management and international banking. You might select from interesting electives such as behavioural finance and forensic accounting, and you will be required to undertake a research project in an area of particular interest.
