Student life at IFT

Find out what sets our student experience apart

The world of finance is undergoing major changes. Disruptive innovations have developed and accelerated us into a new era of technology-led financial services. University programmes must keep pace with the continuous innovations taking place in the finance sector.

The UCL Institute of Finance & Technology (IFT) trains students who can both keep up with and set the pace of these innovations and of future developments. That is why our student experience is designed to help develop commercial competencies, through a balance of learning and research activities, and industrial experiences and exposure. Our programmes can be challenging, so we place a high value on pastoral care and student support, aiming to tailor student experience to the individual. Below, you can find out more about what makes IFT student experience special.
