Finance and Economics

Universities and colleges set their own admission requirements for higher education courses, so they vary broadly. Depending on the course, students may be able to get into higher education with a range of qualifications. If you're applying to do a course, you may find that work experience is taken into consideration alongside any qualifications you have. Some higher education institutes and colleges offer courses as preparation for a certain type of degrees. They usually don't result in separate criteria as they simply qualify you to enter the degree program itself. Courses can be taught in a broad selection of fields of study.

Students who are interested in working in the business sector will need to take classes in finance and economics. Coursework may include investments, managerial accounting, portfolio management, micro and macroeconomics, marketing, statistics and global finance.
