Being able to successfully manage finances is one of the most sought after talents in business. No matter where you are in the world, it will make your personal life easier, and make you an attractive prospect in the job market.

Finance is the specialised study of how an individual or a company manages its funds. Often combined or overlapped with accounting/business, a finance degree gives you a broad understanding of the way that money influences people and places.

Finance course entry requirements

Despite the popularity and prestige of finance degrees, many universities don’t have specific entry requirements. Maths will likely be one of the most attractive subjects for you to demonstrate your talent in, but others like business, economics, or statistics can be equally as important.

A levels – Entry requirements range from CCC to AAA, with the universities and colleges most commonly asking for BBB.

Scottish Highers – Entry requirements for Highers (the most common qualification) range from BBBC to AAAAA, with universities or colleges most frequently requiring AABBB. Occasionally, universities ask for Advanced Highers to supplement Highers. If Advanced Highers are requested, universities or colleges typically ask for AAB.

Vocational courses – Other Level 3/Level 6 qualifications (e.g. Pearson BTEC Level 3 National Extended Diploma, or an SCQF Level 6) may be accepted as an alternative to A levels/Highers by some providers. It’s essential that you check alternative entry requirements with universities or colleges.

Most universities will be looking for some key skills. You should be good with numbers, detail, systems, analysis, and data. Remember, finance isn’t all about the bottom line – so showing your flair for academic theories and models will also serve you well.
