The system of study at FFAS is based on approved credit hours which are delivered by means of lectures and tutorials. The practical side is also embedded in the course through inviting practitioner and senior directors from the financial and industrial sectors to give special lectures and seminars with a view to reflecting on their own experience and providing our students with practical guidance and advice. Training is also available and for the last two years we have had a number of students training in the surrounding banks and industrial companies. In the final year a project is also included in the course, which is meant to extend your knowledge in a particular topic of your choice within the study plan.
