Jersey International Business School, in collaboration with The University of Buckingham, has designed a full degree programme for high achieving students who want to study on Island and accelerate their employability by graduating in two years. The timing of the launch of this degree, due to commence in October, couldn’t be better in light of the recent announcement about student grants being frozen.

In addition to the significant cost savings to be made by studying on Island, students will also benefit from being awarded a degree by a top ranked UK University (classed as 15th out of 116 universities in the country for Business and Management Studies, by The Guardian University Guide 2012) whilst studying at Jersey International Business School in one of the world’s leading international financial centres.

The Business School is already renowned for meeting the Island’s needs with quality business education as the exclusive provider of a number of professional qualifications recognised internationally by the financial services industry. This experience will now be extended to an undergraduate market by combining academia and industry knowledge.

The degree will provide students with a broad and comprehensive understanding of international financial services, laying the groundwork for a successful career in this area or a related discipline such as law and accounting. Every student will be provided with an industry mentor and will be given support in securing internships both locally and internationally.

Anyone who is interested in finding out more about this exciting new opportunity can attend an open day at Jersey International Business School at the Weighbridge on Saturday 28 April between 11am and 4pm. To reserve places at this event please contact the Admissions Officer on 01534 816333 or email

Stephen Platt, Principal of the Jersey International Business School, comments,
“I am delighted that the school is working together with The University of Buckingham to offer this quality degree which offers a considerable saving of up to £60,000 by studying on Island and graduating in two years, compared to studying a three-year degree at a university in the UK. It is worth mentioning that the funding application deadline of 31st March does not apply to this degree programme as we may be able to accept students who have submitted funding applications after this deadline”.
