“I chose to study Accounting and Finance at Kingston University, as I had heard excellent reports about the business school at Kingston Hill from my teachers at school.
I liked the fact that the course had an optional placement year in industry included and I was very fortunate to get the opportunity of a one-year paid placement at a local Chartered Accountancy company. This gave me valuable practical experience to add to my CV and to carry forward in my future career. By taking a placement I was able to further enhance the skills and knowledge of accounting & finance that I had gained from my course, by putting theory into practice.”
"This Banking and Finance MSc sets very high standards in teaching and course content. The course is not only strong academically, but also very oriented towards the practical aspects of a career in banking or finance. I find that the course is extremely well managed by the course leader and tutors. Help and advice is readily available regarding any problems students may encounter."
"The MSc Banking and Finance at Kingston has a perfect mix between theory and practise. I built academic research skills while improving emotional and communication abilities with a highly business oriented program. The university provided the perfect learning foundation, including a 24h library and access to Bloomberg and Thompson Reuters terminals. Lectures were amiable and shared their experiences, constantly challenging students to actively participate in classes. The multicultural environment, together with team work encouraged me to think differently, inspiring me to higher achievements in my career."
"This Banking and Finance MSc programme provides both practical experience and theory, and encourages independent learning and research. I have found that the course has helped me to acquire more knowledge and analytical skills that will strengthen my ability and confidence in carrying out my job in the future."
