This MSc in International Financial Markets offers offers a coherent theoretical framework with an international dimension for the various subject areas, providing a practical application of financial techniques in a real world setting. The main emphasis is on equity, bonds, derivatives markets, and how these markets may be applied to manage a portfolio of financial assets.
Full-time study on the MSc in International Financial Markets follows a schedule of half-day teaching blocks. A single module, for example, will be taught over six half-days, usually the same half-day each week e.g. six consecutive Monday mornings and half modules are taught over three half-days. Module teaching blocks will be scheduled on different half-days so that students will study several modules during the same period .
Teaching on the MSc in International Financial Markets takes place during the autumn, spring and summer terms with a few modules scheduled for evenings and the Easter vacation. These will usually be the optional modules but this is not guaranteed. Formal examinations take place in January and May/June each year at the end of each semester. If you pass the module assessments to a satisfactory standard you are permitted to continue work until September leading to the submission of an MSc dissertation.
