Course Summary

This two-year course is suitable for students who do not meet the entry requirements for a one-year MSc course, including students who have graduated in an unrelated discipline.

On successful completion of the Pre-Masters year you will progress to an MSc Money Banking and Finance programme in the Department of Economics.

MSc Money Banking and Finance

There is a worldwide demand for those trained in the areas of money, banking and finance, which shows no sign of abating. Graduates from this programme hold high-ranking positions in financial centres around the globe. In addition to those aiming for careers in the private sector, it attracts economists currently working in economics, treasury or finance ministries, or in central banks, and graduates preparing for such careers.

Pre-Masters

One third of your pre-Masters year will be spent developing your English skills and academic skills; allowing you to approach academic reading and writing with confidence. You will also develop analytical and mathematical skills in your Economics modules.

Aimed at highly motivated international learners with an excellent academic record, the pre-Masters year is designed to bridge the gap between your current qualification and the postgraduate programme at Birmingham. You will develop both subject specific knowledge in the area of Economics and your academic English.

Other general MSc programmes, or more specialised and policy-oriented programmes, are available in the area of Economics, Banking or Finance.

You will take Economics modules including Microeconomics, Macroeconomics and Introductory Econometrics, together with an optional module. These modules will ensure that you have the knowledge and technical base that you need to succeed on one of our MSc programmes. Studying alongside undergraduate students will fully prepare you for the demands of a UK postgraduate course, as well as allowing you to adjust to UK learning and assessment styles.

Employability

Careers in Business is a dedicated service for postgraduate Business School students. We support you in planning your career, deciding upon your job seeking strategies, making applications, preparing for interviews and assessment centres and developing your skills.

At the start of your Masters programme you will receive an email from the Careers in Business team giving details of how you can access Careers in Business Online.
