Student reviews

The module is a good overview of Personal Finance, and introduces economic concepts. Contemporary issues in finance, such as the financial crash and FinTech, are discussed. Case studies are used to explore how financial decisions affect people in different countries and from differing socio-economic backgrounds. Financial calculators and calculations are used throughout assessments, which offer an introduction to analysing data. Academic writing was developed and feedback was always constructive.

I particularly enjoyed how the topics were interconnected and presented in the context of the lifecourse. The module shows how financial decisions now can have major implications 'tomorrow'.
