Course summary

If you are seeking a career in the financial sector such as banking, personal financial planning, investments and wealth management, this programme is ideal for you.

This vocationally orientated course helps prepare you for the world of financial planning and banking and provides you with a solid foundation for future employment within this sector or for further academic study.

This course is accredited by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA), the regulator of the financial services industry.

Whatever your ambitions, we’re here to help you to achieve them. We’ll support you to identify the skills you’re learning during your course, find your strengths and secure practical experience so that when it comes to applying for jobs or further study, you’ll feel confident in standing out from the crowd. We’ve created the Northampton Employment Promise because we are so confident that if you focus on your studies and complete one of our awards, you’ll be highly employable by the time you graduate. Putting you in a great position to secure employment or continue your studies.

This course aims to develop key academic and professional skills in banking, finance and financial services. Banking and Financial Planning differs from Accounting and Finance in that the subject is more analytical, requiring you to be investigative in your problem-solving.

You will be encouraged to pursue further qualifications and engage in continuous professional development throughout your course so that you can enhance your future employment opportunities. You can opt to gain chartered status through membership of professional bodies such as the Chartered Insurance Institute (CII).

The degree is FCA accredited which means it meets the full qualification requirement to advise on retail investment products.
