Ressources for students studying remotely

  • Research Foundation publications: Students can search for and freely download from a vast range of short, readable, practitioner-based research publications - from financial markets, economics, equity analysis and behavioural finance through to fintech and artificial intelligence. This is a great resource to supplement project or dissertation reading.
  • The Ethical Decision-Making online course: This free online course helps students navigate ethical situations using the Ethical Decision-Making Framework. They are presented with real-world scenarios and case studies in an online platform that allows them to interact with their peers and study at their own pace (1.5 hours learning).
  • CFA Institute Investment Foundations: This program gives students considering careers in the investment industry a clear understanding of industry structure, job roles, investment instruments, inputs and tools. Suitable for undergraduates, this currently free certificate program is delivered entirely through a modern online learning platform accessible on most devices (80-100 hours learning).
