Course information

The Finance and Investment course is one of a suite of finance courses offered by the School of Economics, Finance and Accounting at Coventry University, which will offer students the chance to develop analytical, numerical and financial skills, together with the personal and professional skills vital to the development of good finance professionals.

A key advantage of our programmes is the opportunity to gain knowledge across finance, investment, wealth management, accounting and taxation. You can also choose from specialist optional modules on topics like investment analysis, portfolio management or corporate financial management.

As well as simulation and practical exercises, such as assessing financial investment options or using financial trading software to understand the functioning of financial markets, you will have the chance to apply theory to real-life scenarios that you might encounter on a day-to-day basis as a professional. In the past, previous students have produced a report relating to a case study requiring the provision of finance advice in the areas of protection planning, investment planning and retirement planning.

Add+vantage

The focus on preparing students for successful futures sets Coventry apart as a university.

The Add+vantage modules teach a range of work experience and extra-curricular activities that are taken each year, and broaden students knowledge and skills within a work focused environment. There is a very wide range of Add+vantage free-choice subject areas, and they are arranged in themes.

Overview

After the second year, you have the option of taking a placement/study abroad year*, which could see you undertake an industrial placement or spend 12 months studying abroad to broaden your international perspective.

Your dedicated Employment Personal Tutor will provide support in finding a suitable placement* and, in recent years, we have seen increasing numbers of prestige placements with PwC, Ernst & Young, Deloitte, Microsoft, IBM, Jaguar Land Rover and the NHS, as well as positions with a large number of small firms based in the West Midlands. The placement provides an excellent opportunity to obtain appropriate discipline-specific work experience on a much more significant scale than vacation or part-time work.

If you wish to undertake the optional study abroad/placement year*, you will take either the Placement Year module or the Study Abroad Year module which both typically run for a full academic year between years 2 and 3 of your course. You are able to progress onto the relevant module if you have successfully completed the first two years of the course (i.e. having accumulated 240 credits) and have a confirmed opportunity two weeks prior to the start of the academic year, however we encourage international students to confirm their placements earlier to ensure they are able to meet any applicable visa requirements.

Students opting for either the work placement or study abroad module* will be registered on a non-credit bearing module and therefore no additional tuition fees apply. While the modules do not bear credits, they do require completion of a marked assessment reflecting on your placement/study abroad or work placement experience. Following successful completion of this assessment, the module selected will appear on your final academic transcript. Students will thus graduate with 360 credits in total, assuming successful completion of their final year.

*Please note that we are unable to guarantee any placement or study abroad opportunities and that all such opportunities may be subject to additional costs (e.g. travel, visas and accommodation etc.), competitive application, availability and/or meeting any applicable visa requirements. To ensure that you fully understand the requirements in this regard, please contact the International Office for further details if you are an EU or International student.

  • Modules During your placement year you will complete one of the following two modules:

  • Placement

  • Study Abroad

Overview

You will be required to conduct a project to demonstrate your understanding of finance and investment; previous students have chosen a specific contemporary issue of interest to them. Examples of topics chosen include the impact of financial crises on financial markets and the effect of regulation on financial services.

If you have successfully completed the first year module, Regulatory Environment, and the second year module, Investment and Taxation, you will be able to undertake the final module towards a professional qualification with the CISI, Wealth Management. After successful completion of certain external examinations you will obtain the Investment Advice Diploma from CISI, a Level 4 qualification which could offer access to further higher level CISI qualifications (further qualifications are subject to successful completion, competitive application, availability, meeting any professional body requirements and additional costs). For more information, see the Accreditation and Professional Recognition section of this page.
