MSc International Business & Communication  - this is not a new programme but we have introduced a few changes to it. In the past students did several translation/interpreting courses so had to have a high level of one international language. Not anymore! The programme is now concentrated entirely on developing English-language communication skills in business contexts.

MSc Economics, Banking and Finance - This new Masters programme builds upon this reputation with an exciting programme of study gives equal emphasis to the study of economics, banking and finance.

The programme is informed by recent developments in research, and encourages the development of professional skills and advanced communication skills. The structure of the programme is designed to provide graduates with access to a range of professions and managerial careers within banks, businesses, non-government organisations and (national and international) government institutions. Alongside the practical skills and knowledge acquired, students will also engage in independent research.

My counsellor contacted me every day throughout the application process and helped me receive an unconditional offer. I am so grateful to SI-UK and will never forget them. I will study very hard as I feel this is the best reward I can give the whole team.
