Visit our website for more information on fees, scholarships, postgraduate loans and other funding options to study at Swansea University - winner of the 'Postgraduate' category at the WhatUni? Student Choice Awards 2017. This course is designed for students from any background who are interested in moving into a career in finance.

Entry requirements

Students must attain a 2:2 (or overseas equivalent) in an undergraduate degree. Any degree subject will be considered. 

We consider all applications on their merits and will look at each individual case before making an offer so students who fall slightly short of the entry criteria should still apply to the School of Management.

Non-native English speakers must achieve an IELTS score of 6.0 overall with no component less than 5.5. A list of equivalent tests are provided here. If you have studied an undergraduate degree taught through the medium of English you maybe exempt from this requirement.

For students who fall short of only the English language requirement we offer a range of Pre-Master's training programmes that you may take before starting your Master's qualification.

For students who fall significantly short of the general entry requirement we offer a Pre-Master's programme via International College Wales Swansea that will allow you to enter our postgraduate programmes.

Modules typically include: Independent Project; Independent Project for Financial Modelling; Independent Project for Quantitative Financial Analysis; Principles of Finance; International Financial Markets; Financial Statement Preparation and Analysis; Principles of Law for Accounting and Finance; Corporate Governance & Ethics; Project Management; Contemporary Issues in Finance; International Management; Business Analytics; Data Mining; Theory of Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management; Business Planning.
