Gozo Campus

Advanced Diploma in Finance and Insurance



Course details

This course is aimed at prospective learners who would like to venture in one of the many careers related to Financial Services. The first year of studies introduces learners to generic areas of financial services, including the world of insurance. In the second year of studies, learners will then choose an area of specialisation, by opting for one of two streams. Specialisation can be either in financial services or else in insurance. This approach ensures that, in the first year, any learner following this course is exposed to different areas of the financial services world, thus giving them better flexibility in career prospects. In choosing a main area of expertise in the second year of the course, learners will be very strong in the specific area chosen, while having a good understanding of the other areas.

Students taking this course at the Gozo Campus can only pursue the Financial Services specialisation stream in the second year of the course. Students opting for the Insurance Studies stream will need to continue their studies at the MCAST Main Campus in Paola.
