Course programme

Structure

MSc Law and Finance is available for one year full-time study or two years part-time study. If you are considering part-time study you should be aware that lectures are held both during the day and in the evening.

You can choose one of six paths:

  • General pathway
  • Specialist pathway A – Banking and financial services
  • Specialist pathway B – Law and financial regulation
  • Specialist pathway C – Law and corporate finance
  • Specialist pathway D - Islamic finance
  • Specialist pathway E – Compliance in the global markets.

Each taught finance module is worth 15 credits; each taught legal module is worth 22.5 credit. There is also 15,000-word dissertation worth 45 credits.

Part-time

The part-time MSc is essentially aimed at legal/ finance practitioners working full-time in the UK. You will attend the same modules and follow the same teaching timetable as full-time students.

The part-time programme is, however, spread over two academic years.

General pathway

In year one, you will normally complete 90 credits of taught modules. In year two, you will normally take a further 45 credits of taught modules and submit the compulsory 15,000-word dissertation (45 credits). This can of course be changed if necessary, as the dissertation can actually be done in either year. However we would always advise part-time students to take 90 credits of taught modules in their first year if they are timetabled in a convenient slot.

Specialist Pathways

If you choose to follow one of the five specialist pathways you will complete total of 180 credits over the two years. You will complete 45 credits of compulsory law modules and 45 credits of compulsory finance modules spread across the two years from the list of modules linked to the pathway, plus a further 45 credits of optional taught modules and the compulsory 15,000-word dissertation (45 credits).

Pre-sessional (Non-mandatory)

It is strongly recommended to attend a non-mandatory pre-sesional course in Maths and Statistics and one in Law. These two pre-sessional courses are free of charge and last one week each. If you are registered in the programme you are automatically registered for these two pre-sessional courses.

Pre-sessional course: Mathematics and statistics

Students who want to review concepts such as statistical distributions and matrix algebra have the option to attend module(s) during induction week (week zero) within the School of Economics and Finance.

Pre-sessional course: Law

Students who want to review concepts such as the difference between common law and civil, general principles of law and the basis of the different areas of law have the option to attend a module(s) during induction week offered within the Centre of Commercial Law Studies.

Students will be also presented with basic Statistics and Statistical software (Eviews - Semester A or B).

Quantitative Research methods for Lawyers - optional non credit bearing (Semester B).

Professional module exemptions

If you intend to apply for the Chartered Banker Diploma from the Chartered Banker Institute (CBI) you will be eligible for exemptions from the following Chartered Banker Diploma modules.

  • If you take QMUL modules: Law and Ethics in Finance, Corporate Governance and Responsibility in Finance, Banking Law International and Banking Law you will be eligible for exemption from CBI module: Risk Management for Banking (option).
  • If you take QMUL module: ‘Applied Risk Management for Banking’ (option) you will be eligible for exemption from CBI module: Risk Management in Banking.
  • In addition to the subject specific credits, the CBI offers one further Notional credit for a core unit, for example if you study any combination of three of the following modules: Regulation of Financial Markets, Business Finance, Principles of Accounting, Financial Economics, Commercial and Investment Banking, Secured Finance in Commercial Transactions. If you gain three credits, two subject specific credits and one notional, you will be eligible to apply for CBI Associate status.
Optional short courses

The School runs a set of support modules and practical classes (in addition to the MSc programme modules) specifically intended to equip students with further practical training and key technical skills to improve employability prospects.

These modules are often taught by leading finance professionals working in the finance centres of the City. Their extensive practical experience, combined with the academic credentials of our faculty, allow us to create a superbly balanced and enriched educational programme.
