Student Profile(s)

Georgian Vasilache

"I can truly say that Surrey has shaped me into the adult that I am today."

After completing my undergraduate studies in Accounting and Finance I knew it wasn’t all over. Having spent the last three years in Guildford I can tell you that the University of Surrey is hard to leave behind. The beautiful campus is always filled with laughter from students everywhere you go, making it one of the friendliest environments to be in.

The main reason for choosing to study Investment Management is my passion for the ever-changing world of finance. This course provides hands on experience into investment management by giving you the opportunity to complete the renowned Bloomberg Market Concepts (BMC) module on the Bloomberg terminals located in Surrey Business School.

Knowing how the world is interconnected is crucial in finance. This programme equipped me with numerous quantitative and fundamental skills which allowed me to analyse financial markets and keep up to date with current world affairs. Being able to add value by applying knowledge is one of my personal interests and helped me decide that this course is right for me.

"Surrey Business School also offers scholarships for MSc students including the Chartered Financial Analyst (CFA) exams which is one of the highest finance distinctions in the world. It is fascinating to see how the faculty is helping and encouraging students to achieve their future dream jobs."

The course is well structured and has a good combination of core and optional modules, allowing you to specialise in different fields of finance, including risk management, fixed income and equity valuation or corporate governance. This programme has got it all.

There are many opportunities to apply the knowledge learned, one of them being the Bloomberg Trading Challenge. This is where 250 teams from UK universities are given $1m virtual cash to invest in the equities markets over the course of three months. At the end of the competition, the first three teams which have generated the highest returns will be invited to the Bloomberg office in London to present their investment strategy, and this could potentially lead to a graduate job.

Each module has enabled me to develop crucial skills needed in the world of finance such as teamworking, communication, organisation, time management to name just a few. I can truly say that Surrey has shaped me into the adult that I am today.



Scholarships

The discount applies to:

September/October 2021 entrants
February 2021 entrants
February 2022 entrants. Note: if applicable and Masters programmes are running with a February intake for the 2021/22 academic year.

Students graduating in the summer of 2021 may be eligible, as well as alumni from previous years, on receipt of evidence of the award from Surrey and where we can identify that you actually studied in Guildford. Students from SII DUFE are eligible for this scheme. Associated Institution students are not eligible. This scheme is not available to modular self-pacing students.

This scheme is only open to 2021 postgraduate taught entry students who are not in receipt of any external sponsorship.

Value of Scholarship(s)

20% tuition fee discount

Eligibility

If you are a fully self-funded UK, EU or international student who has studied for an undergraduate degree at the University of Surrey campus in Guildford, you may be eligible for a 20 per cent discount on our taught postgraduate masters programme fees.

Application Procedure

The University will identify eligible students, so there is no application form for this scheme.

For eligible students, the required pre-payment (deposit) of tuition fees due for 2021/22 will have to be paid in order to enrol on your programme, as previously detailed to you by the admissions team, then the twenty per cent discount (based on the full fee amount for 2021/22) is deducted from the remaining balance.

This means the tuition fee invoice, which will be emailed to your University email account sometime during October/November 2021 or February 2022 will reflect the actual balance due.
