The dissertation is an opportunity for you to apply research skills to develop your understanding of the world of banking and finance.

This course has an Industry Placement Option.

Course Details

This course is designed to complement the range of knowledge and skills that you will have acquired in your previous study and work experience. Studying International Banking and Finance will provide you with theoretical and practical frameworks as well as analytical techniques and key transferable skills. In addition it will develop your ability to apply relevant knowledge and skills and will boost your confidence in exercising your professional judgement in different scenarios. The modules and teaching on the course helps to prepare you for careers in international financial regulation, banking, insurance and corporate governance.

Industry Placement Option

The industry placement enables you to develop your skills and knowledge in a real-world work environment, whilst completing an applied research project. This will give you an advantage over the competition for jobs and scholarships after you graduate and could be a good starting point for setting up your own consultancy business.

Your placement will need to be appropriate to your level of study and you should also be paid for this work. We will support you in finding and securing a suitable placement opportunity, however it must be noted that placements are highly competitive and there is no guarantee of a placement offer being made by an employer.

If you are unable or unwilling to progress with an industry placement, for whatever reason, you will have the option to transfer onto our Dissertation and Research Methods module in order to gain the required credits to complete your programme of study.
