University Links

We enjoy good relationships with universities across the UK and there are a small number of universities that offer specialist degrees that link to our professional qualifications:

Graduates from other UK universities who have studied a degree in one of the following areas can claim our 'standard award', which gives credits towards our professional qualifications in financial services (and insurance):

  • Accounting
  • Business
  • Economics
  • Finance
  • Law
  • Management

That said, many graduates who enter our profession do not have a finance-related degree. What they do have is the right set of soft skills (such as communication, problem-solving, teamwork, empathy) that make them attractive to clients and effective in the workplace.

If you are a student at a UK university and you would like to build your knowledge and network, you can apply for our low-cost Discover membership scheme here »
