How can knowledge of trading global markets affect risk management and compliance? Will firms that have trading arms executing orders in global markets need specialist trader analytics to succeed in today's business world?

Alongside banks, a growing number of both financial firms (e.g. hedge funds) and non-financial firms (e.g. utilities) have trading arms which execute orders in the markets and deal on behalf of either the firm or outside clients. Therefore, knowledge of trading global markets is a prerequisite for your career in trading, risk management or compliance.

On this course, we prepare you for a successful career in finance and financial services by covering in-depth finance, statistical modelling and trading skills. Taught by industry experts, we offer a mix of classroom-based instruction, case study and practical trading exercise where you trade on real-time simulated global markets through the use of industry-strength proprietary trading software in our specialist trading lab.

You master areas including:
-Trading strategies
-Risk and money management
-Trader analytics
-Portfolio management and empirical methods in finance

You are given exposure to practical trading in a wide range of markets, including equities, FX, commodities and bonds.

Postgraduate loans for Masters courses are now available from the Student Loans Company, worth up to £10,000, for students from the UK and EU.

Upon successful completion of the PG Cert, you will have an opportunity, if you wish, to apply to study the Postgraduate Diploma (PG Dip).

The PGDip primarily consists of a work placement with OSTC. Applicants will be required to undertake an interview with representatives of the university and OSTC. If successful, you will have the opportunity to undertake in-depth training on industryspecific simulators which will prepare you for work as a financial derivatives trader. Throughout this phase you will be required to keep a learning log of your training activities and to submit a written assignment reflecting on your practice at the end of the placement. You will also undertake in-house assessments, managed by OSTC and UWTSD.

Upon successful completion of the Postgraduate Diploma you may have the opportunity to go directly into employment as a trader with OSTC, subject to their selection procedures. You will also have the opportunity to continue your study to Master’s Level by completing a 60-credit dissertation.

Modules

PG Cert:
-Global Financial Markets
-Financial Derivatives
-Behavioural Finance

Whether you've previously studied geography or computer game design, maths or visual communication, if you are ambitious, hard-working and anayltical then you may have what it takes to succeed in the financial trading sector.

Upon successful completion of the Postgraduate Diploma, you may have the opportunity to go straight into employment with OSTC, allowing you to start work as a trader without having to re-locate to London.

Career Opportunities
