Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: Upper Second Class

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Upper Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

  • Academic record: Candidates must possess previous relevant work experience within the banking and financial regulation sector.
  • Candidates must have an upper second class honours degree at undergraduate level from a UK university or the equivalent from an overseas university.
  • Transcripts: You will need to provide transcripts of your degree.
  • References: We require one professional reference from your line manager. 

Work Experience

The course is primarily aimed at those currently working in the banking and financial regulation industries or the related professional services and your application will therefore be strengthened based on the length and level of previous relevant work experience.

Technological Requirements

The Global Banking and Financial Regulation course is delivered 100% online and incorporates online text, multimedia, discussion forums and live webinar sessions.

You will therefore require a stable and relatively high speed internet connection, an up-to-date web browser, the ability to listen to sound (a headset or speakers), and a microphone for taking part in live online webinars and group work.
