Why study here?

As a department, we prioritise both teaching excellence with a high research output, setting us apart from the majority of institutions which tend to place their emphasis on one or the other. In terms of courses, we offer a variety of high-quality undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses, all awarded by the University of London.

  • During your studies you will be assigned a personal advisor from among our academics who will provide you with extra academic support and guidance
  • Cutting-edge resources include an Express Lab and Bloomberg Financial database
  • Focus on your future with short employability modules built into all three years of study for undergraduate students
