Financial Technology (FinTech) projects
When do students undertake their project?
Students generally undertake their projects from May—September or July—January (depending on their course start date). Our students are looking for project opportunities throughout the year, so project scopes from employers should be submitted as far in advance of the project start date as possible to guarantee a swift start of the project.
Projects can be discussed with staff in advance, typically by contacting the program director or by direct connections with members of the university or students themselves. Early contacts will allow the project to be properly scoped and requirements and timeline discussed, considering both company's objectives and academic requirements. Then projects can be advertised for the selection, if needed, of a suitable student. Within their project, students will produce a dissertation for their MSc programme. Special requirements, e.g. IP protection or a project's specific constraints, will be considered.
