Our Higher Diploma in Business in Finance & Technology is a conversion course into the FinTech Industry - a one year course, delivered 100% online, designed to equip you with the core knowledge, skills and competencies to pursue a successful career as a FinTech professional in the financial services industry.
At the heart of the programme is a focus on ensuring you can develop a more hybrid skillset. It’s with this in mind that the course was designed in collaboration with financial services professionals to ensure the modules prepare you appropriately. Modules include Project Management, Equity and Financial Systems Analysis.
Key features of the course include strong alignment with industry requirements both at home and abroad, and skills that are transferable to the wider financial services industry including technology requirements.
With a personal and supportive approach to learning throughout the culmination of the programme involves a work placement to allow you to apply your new knowledge in a practical manner in a professional corporate environment.
FinTech roles are becoming more varied, and following graduation you can look forward to a rewarding career in Asset Management, Trading, Insurance, Banking and even Payments.
Certain semesters of this course are taken in common with other courses.

As opposed to coming to us and learning, we have all learned from our HDip FinTech work placement student. He brought FinTech industry/market knowledge – especially in the crypto space – that we didn’t have in our team. This has been vital in our current phase of our business as we review the opportunity of moving from Web2 to Web3. The placement has worked out so well that we have now offered our placement student a fulltime job with us.
A fantastic opportunity for anyone who wishes to pursue a career in the field of FinTech with this course. FinTrU and the broader FinTech industry will benefit immensely from the knowledge and skills that this course offers. The financial services industry is experiencing rapid change both in terms of regulation, technology, and service requirements. This course provides participants with an opportunity to develop knowledge in financial services and delivery; skills that are in demand across the industry.
