Financial Regulation and Compliance

The programme has been designed by practitioners essentially for those either in or intending to enter the compliance profession. Therefore in considering applications we will take account of any relevant practical experience that candidates have had. The programme is taught by legal and regulatory experts as well as those who have, and in some cases continue, to hold senior positions in compliance. While practically orientated, the programme does, however, place the law and relevant practices in a conceptual context and in particular addresses issues relating to liability much wider than, for example, would arise simply under the Financial Services and Markets Act. There is also a focus on issues relevant to a wide cross-section of commercial law including contract law, agency, sale of goods, and security.

Entry requirements

A Law degree (minimum lower 2nd Class Honours); or a degree in law and another subject (minimum lower 2nd Class Honours); or a non-law degree (minimum lower 2nd Class Honours) and a pass in the GDL or CPE; or a non-law degree (minimum lower 2nd Class Honours) and appropriate/relevant professional experience. Non-graduates with appropriate professional experience will also be considered. Applicants whose 1st language is not English require an IELTS score of 6.5 or equivalent qualification.
