Diploma in Financial Studies
The Diploma in Financial Studies (DipFS) has been designed to provide you with the opportunity to develop and enhance the knowledge and skills gained by achieving the Certificate in Financial Studies (CeFS), by applying them to the wider financial environment. DipFS explores, in depth, the key concepts of financial capability and how they are applied to achieve longer-term financial sustainability.
It develops and extends the knowledge and skills required for young people to make informed financial decisions through understanding the risks and challenges involved in personal finance and the importance of effective planning. Through developing core skills of critical analysis and evaluation, synthesis and written communication, DipFS provides strong foundations for further study in business and finance-related disciplines, as well as a wide range of other fields.
