Studying for your PG Cert Business and Financial Trading course online offers you the freedom to study when and where it suits you – you can learn at home, during your lunch hour or anywhere else where you have internet access.
Teaching methods and style
Unlike a traditional university environment, our online PG Cert Business and Financial Trading course utilises a Virtual Learning Environment. The system is designed to track and manage the learning process in real-time and provides you with immediate access to your learning materials wherever you are.
This learning platform allows both students and tutors to actively take part in real-time conversations and you can listen to, and view, live lectures and seminars over the internet. You will also be encouraged to identify and share relevant web-based resources and put your learning into practice with live trading simulations.
You will be supported throughout your course by a dedicated Student Adviser and have the opportunity to regularly interact with fellow students and your tutor.
Methods of assessment
Assessment for the PG Cert Business and Financial Trading will be based on a combination of written coursework, discussion contributions and work on a reflective report.
We have a policy of ensuring that work submitted by students is authentic. As well as the fact that all work is frequently assessed, we use a well established electronic monitoring system to check for plagiarism.
On successful completion of your course, you will receive a transcript from the University of Essex.
