Successful completing of the Finance and Investment BSc can help you gain the skills and confidence to offer sound financial advice that could change someone’s future.

Currently recognised by the Chartered Institute for Securities & Investment (CISI) and the Chartered Financial Analyst Society of the UK (CFA UK) and offering exemptions from certain exams set by the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII), this specialist course will suit those who intend to pursue a potential future career in the financial services sector, in areas such as investment advice, insurance, pensions, and wealth management.
