    Course Summary

    Canterbury Christ Church University’s Finance BSc degree program is of interest to anyone who is interested in gaining a deep understanding of the financial world, especially if they intend to build a rewarding, challenging career offering financial services, making detailed financial analyses or assessing investment risk.

    You’ll study the broad aspects of economics as well as more specific skills like business analysis, corporate finance, econometrics, financial decision making and financial accounting.  

    This program includes an integrated foundation year. This is important in that it allows students who do not meet the traditional requirements for a 3 year BSc degree program – especially those of Maths and Science A Levels – to not only enter into the program but excel in it. Because this is a BSc and not a BA degree, it also serves as an entry point for a higher educational journey at the MSc or even PhD level.

    If you are changing direction after starting in another career area, you will possess valuable work experience and professional awareness. Many employers actively seek candidates with these benefits. Our network of contacts, a dedicated employability service and a reputation in the legal profession mean we also have an outstanding track-record of finding students legal employment.Many employers favour GDL students in an increasingly competitive legal job market. Through studying another degree subject, you will have gained many transferable skills. By taking the conversion route into law, you are showing motivation and determination by choosing law at a later stage than some others. This looks good to employers.

    Taught modules will be delivered in a variety of ways, depending on the nature of the material and the skills or preferences of the course tutor. Modules in the main section of this course typically begin with foundational content, leading up to advanced materials in the latter sessions. You’ll typically take 6 modules concurrently each year, and they have been chosen to synergise well in terms of skills, techniques and vocabulary.

    Career Possiblities

    This course will prepare you well for a career in banking, investment or the financial services industry. If you choose to get full professional accreditation next, as many graduates do, you’ll benefit from exemptions offered by organisations like the Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), the Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW), the Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), the Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA) and even CPA Australia.

    Entry Credit

    Successful completion will result in a 3 year BSc degree.

    Applicants must typically have earned at least 32 UCAS Tariff Points to enter the foundation year, but other qualifications are also accepted. The full list of accepted qualifications can be found here.

    All classes are taught in English, and international students will be required to show proficiency in English by scoring well on an approved test. A good IELTS score would qualify, for example.
