This preparatory course aims to provide tuition support to students for studying the MSc in Professional Accountancy, University of London (UCL). 

This programme aims to provide students with a sound understanding of the purposes, nature and operation of global capital markets. It seeks to identify who uses them, and why, and how. Within that it illustrates the dynamics of the interactions of actions as capital is exchanged using financial instruments to generate returns while managing risk. It reveals the context in which these actors operate in markets, and particularly so in the context of regulations imposed on markets. Additionally, it seeks to illustrate an evolving regulatory legacy and evolving attitudes to risk-return trade-offs.
