Course summary

Overview

This is a distinctive programme that provides a comprehensive postgraduate study package in the area of banking and finance law.

The programme will enable you to develop knowledge and skills in relation to the legal rules regulating the financial and capital markets in the UK, as well as at a global level. It will provide you with the opportunity to learn about the international regulatory frameworks in which banks and other financial institutions operate, as well as commercial financial issues such as the legal framework for international syndicated loans, bond issues, secured credit and insolvency.

You’ll investigate and apply the complex rules of banking and finance law to novel problems and real-world and hypothetical scenarios.

Learning and teaching

Our compulsory and optional modules are taught through a range of smaller group seminars and lectures, depending on the module. All students receive weekly academic skills training in the first semester. Support for the dissertation is provided in group sessions, a number of one-to-one meetings and comment on draft work.

Independent study is integral to this programme – not just to prepare for classes but to develop research and other critical skills.

On this course you’ll be taught by our expert academics, from lecturers through to professors. You may also be taught by industry professionals with years of experience, as well as trained postgraduate researchers, connecting you to some of the brightest minds on campus.

Career opportunities

The International Banking and Finance programme enables graduates to pursue careers where success is built on the ability to understand, analyse and respond to developments in international banking and finance law. Recent graduates have gone on to pursue successful careers in organisations such as Pinsent Masons, Fidelity International, KPMG, Alpha FMC and beyond.

The programme also provides a stepping stone to further research projects. A number of our students choose to remain with us to pursue a research career as PhD students.
