Russell Square International College
Under The Academic Guidance Of London School Of Economics And Political Science, this degree aims to provide you with an understanding of the ways in which financial intermediaries and institutions operate, and the structure and functioning of financial markets. Students learn about the pricing of financial assets, and why and how corporations issue various types of assets.
The Banking units will provide information on precisely how such intermediaries operate, both on a domestic level and in the international arena. Through this international degree, you also learn how banks (and other institutions) might use financial assets, for example, derivatives, in their risk management procedures.
The programme has been developed by academics at The London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), regarded as an international centre of academic excellence and innovation in the social sciences.

Russell Square International College presents the opportunity to pursue some of the most sought-after undergraduate courses in the world, laying the foundation for academic and professional success alike. Since the strength of the college is small, it has a high teacher-to-student ratio, which helps students stand-out in such challenging courses.
My main attraction in pursuing a degree from University of London (UOL) was the name 'LSE' that was involved with it. For an economics lover like myself, this course gives a comprehensive understanding of economics and all its branches.
After my days at RSIC, I came to the UK. RSIC's UOL course enabled me to get a scholarship to pursue my Masters in the UK. Currently, I am working at 4C Associates, a consulting firm in London, UK. RSIC has helped to mould me in many ways, and it prepares me to step into the real world. The capabilities I've developed over the course of my degree are exactly what employees are looking for in a graduate.
