Why study with the School of Economics, Finance and Law

You want the benefit of a thriving and highly regarded school where you can develop your skills and confidence for a potentially complex and competitive career. Graduating with this kind of specialist knowledge of your subject and experience through a work placement makes you valuable to employers, confident that you’ve learnt the tools to do the job.

You'll also have the opportunity to study abroad for a semester or volunteer overseas with ARU Global. A life-changing experience that will broaden your horizons. You'll also meet new people from all over the world, and develop skills that will improve your employability.

Our finance courses access our Bloomberg Financial Markets Lab in Chelmsford from day one, honing your skills in a training environment that uses real-life live financial markets data, where you can experiment, fail and build you confidence until you have a profound grasp of the platform used by finance professionals the world over.

You’re curious about the rules by which society is organised and how they can be changed, studying law can grow this curiosity and is relevant not just in the legal profession but in many other industries too. Practice these skills while you learn in our mock law courts or public Law Clinics, supporting and advising members of the public and helping them through the court process under the supervision of practicing legal professionals.

You know what it takes to be a professional whatever your field and we design our courses to get you on the right track, regularly reviewing to ensure we challenge the traditional ways of thinking and doing whilst giving you the confidence to make things happen.

With professional accreditation to back up the theory of your degree, you’ll stand out from the crowd of other applicants and be ready for your first graduate job.
