A graduate scheme has been launched at a Northern Ireland university to help university-leaders get in to financial services sector.

The University of Ulster unveiled its Graduate Development Programme in Financial Services at its Belfast campus this week.

The graduate scheme is aimed at giving unemployed graduates the required skills to work in the financial services sector, which includes banks, credit card companies and insurance firms.

Philip Hamill, professor of finance and development at the University of Ulster, helped develop the programme.

"I'm delighted with the response. Our initial target was twenty-five candidates," he said. "Today just over one hundred candidates enrolled onto the programme."

The university's Graduate Development Programme is an intensive scheme comprised of three modules: securities and investment, financial regulation and global securities operations.

As well as the Belfast campus, the University of Ulster has three others, based in Coleraine, Jordanstown and Magee.
