Course Introduction

If you have the ability but not the qualifications required to apply for our three'year BA Hons Finance and Investment Banking programme, this four'year programme will provide you with another route.

It begins with a foundation year that will give you a solid grounding from which to progress to degree'level study. You will gain a thorough introduction to business and an understanding of ethics, enterprise and leadership. You will also strengthen your numeracy ability and learn essential computing, communication and academic writing skills, and how to manage your studies independently.

After your first year, you will study the same courses as those on our three'year BSc Hons Finance and Investment Banking programme.
