    Course Summary

    University of Stirling’s MSc (with honours) in Banking and Finance is the ideal way to build an understanding of the way banks and financial institutions work, even if you have no prior training or experience in the field. It will give you an understanding of the methodologies of banking and finance, and is accredited by the CBI (Chartered Banker Institute), one of few programs in the UK that can make that boast.

    This program has a strong focus on building the expertise, knowledge and skills students will need to take up a rewarding career in the Banking industry or in the field of Finance. You’ll learn to apply banking and financial concepts practically, and how to use professional ethics, risk management, financial reporting and other tools to the benefit of your employer’s organisation, their shareholders and ultimately their customers and clients as well.

    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.
