More about these courses

These courses are designed to develop your practical understanding of important legal principles, detailed regulatory requirements and compliance issues facing the financial services sector.

You’ll have the opportunity critically to explore various areas of financial services law including corporate governance, risk management, complaints and financial crime.

If you are a legal practitioner, these programmes will allow you to specialise in this area of law. The courses are also suitable if you already work in the financial services sector and are looking to understand the legal aspects within the regulation and compliance environment.

At the end of the programme, you’ll understand the influence of European law on financial services, regulation and compliance. You’ll also be able to appreciate the commercial importance of this area of law and evaluate the impact of global and commercial policy issues on this sector.

This is a desirable area of commercial interest that will increase your employability potential in financial services and other regulatory sectors.

Your tutors and lecturers will have backgrounds in both academia and legal practice.

These courses are delivered online, so you’ll be able to study from anywhere in the world.

It is also possible for you to study a PG Diploma and a PG Certificate version of this course.
