Study with us

The Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment runs two educational programmes; the Sustainable Finance Foundation Course (SFFC) and the Climate-related Financial Risk Course (CFRC).

The SFFC was launched in 2016 and is the premier short-course on sustainable finance globally. We aim to attract the best and brightest current and future leaders and deliver a unique experience that equips participants with the knowledge and networks required to undertake significant future work on sustainable finance. The course is centred around a five-day residential workshop held across Jesus and Keble Colleges from Monday 23 to Friday 27 September 2019.

The CFRC is a new short course launching in 2019. Measuring and managing climate-related financial risks will be critical for institutions across the financial system. This has been made clear by the G20 Task Force on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD), as well as by central banks and financial regulators around the world. This course will equip participants with the very latest knowledge on climate-related financial risks, as well as the expertise, networks, and confidence to design and implement practices for measuring and managing these risks. The course takes place during a three-day residential workshop held at Keble College, Oxford from Wednesday 17 to Friday 19 July 2019.
