Money, Capital and Financial Markets

On this course, we will cover the theory and operation of financial markets, what causes fluctuations in the values of shares, and the real-world impact of rising or falling stock market indexes. Students will look at the practicalities of building up an investment portfolio, making decisions about potential risks and rewards.

We will also examine the bond and other debt markets – how does a country borrow money to cover its public spending, who decides on the interest rates, and what happens if a state defaults on its obligations?

All of our online courses consist of small seminar groups, with lots of opportunities for discussion and debate with peers as well as learning from our expert tutors. This will be a fully live and interactive event, with summary notes and a certificate of attendance issued upon completion of the course.

This style of learning is an excellent preparation for further study, and should give participants a real taste of economics as an academic subject, enabling students to make a more informed choice about future study or career options.

‘It was great! Tutor was lovely with a small group of students and explained everything very well. I learned so much about a topic I knew almost nothing about, and enlightened me about possible modules I can take at uni that I didn’t know that I would enjoy previously.’

‘It is a challenging course however it is fun and is a very good insight into markets.It is also very inspiring.’

‘The course will give you an understanding of how the stock market operates. You will be taught about the different types of investments for example bonds, shares, currencies and derivatives and their respective advantages. You will also learn about how money works and how it can cause an increase in exports or imports in a country. I signed up to this course to see if I wanted to do Economics at Uni not having done it at school. The course was very well structured and taught and I understood everything, enjoying every bit of it!’

‘The course is very much like being in class but where you can go into depth about what you really want to study within a topic and not just the whole topic itself. The course also allows you to hugely expand your knowledge from what you already learn at A level.’
