CFA® Program Partner
This programme is a 12 months full-time programme, studied over three terms. It is based at the Exeter campus of the University throughout this time.
The programme begins with a three week full-time, compulsory, induction and foundation course. The induction includes an introduction to several of the subject areas covered in the programme, in particular accounting. It also includes a week of preparation for the CFA® exams, delivered by a dedicated CFA® trainer.
The taught components of the programme are delivered in the first two terms, with the third term, and most of the summer, spent researching and writing a dissertation.
During the first two terms, we also provide four weekend sessions delivered by CFA® trainers. The purpose of which is to provided specific help and training for students sitting the CFA® exams.
The programme in its entirety, including the mandatory foundation course, runs from September to September. In 2015, the intensive mandatory foundation course will commence three weeks before formal teaching begins.
During the programme you will study modules (including the dissertation) totalling 180 credits. Please note that modules are subject to change. To ensure a high level of coverage of the CFA® syllabus all of the modules on this programme are compulsory.
The programme is divided into units of study called 'modules' which are assigned a number of 'credits'. The credit rating of a module is proportional to the total workload, with 1 credit being nominally equivalent to 10 hours of work.
Students will be given the option to take either BEFM020 Dissertation or BEAM006 Investment Analysis Dissertation during Term 3
