    The "Regtech" course provided a good range of learning material and Prof Clark delivery made the sessions interesting and lively. Some sections were much harder to follow than others, especially when some terms or tecnical words were shared on screen. However it was just as easy to replay and review the transcriptsor look for them in google to learn them for the more challenging sections.

    It is an splendid course, explanation in the videos is clear, comprehensible. My negative critic is that the final project was not comprehensible for me, specification was not so accurate or clear, but maybe must be because english is not my primary language. I recommend this course.

    This course was very useful and contained a lot of theoretical information and statistics regarding the Fintech field. Still, it will be great if there will be more specific examples of implementation of some instruments in real life. Thank you.

    I found this course well developed and organized with the provision of lectures, notes and quizzes. All these elements were quite helpful in achieving the goals of the syllabus. Watching Prof Theodore's lecture enabled me to understand all the significant aspects taught in this course. I enjoyed attempting the quizzes and the final project. The instructions were comprehensive enough to be followed and helped me in constructing the two significant parts. Peer-Reviewing also gave an excellent opportunity to read and understand the viewpoints, expression, and style of writing of my peers. I thoroughly enjoyed it and would recommend taking this course.

    Good lectures by Professor Theodore. Great insights by the HSBC COO and the Ex-Police personnel. However, I would have been more interested in knowing about the Technological advancements by Regulatory agencies in the field of Capital Market. Various countries have developed Cloud Based Supervision Models and other technologically superior models. That can be covered as a good topic in the course.

    All in all, it was a good lecture series,. I would also appreciate if Professor can provide us wth some links to some resources or books or articles to read for this class.

    Its a good course. The only thing I would say to the lecturers is to include additional reading papers to do e.g PSD2 and other papers can be required reading. The final project is a bit of a big leap because of the level of detail we have to go into but this is where the learning happens I suppose. its a good way to get a broad overview of the things happening, its up to you to take things to the next level but this is a good skeleton.

    This has been one of the best online courses I have taken thus far! It has been extremely useful for me in widening my understanding of financial markets and a great introduction to cryptocurrencies which before hand I found very confusing. The tutor is very engaging and makes each topic very interesting creating a further incentive to do additional research based on the subjects discussed in the course!

    Hello everybody ,

    I attended this course in complex I like it. Basically the course touches many points of the regulation, probably I would have liked to discover the different regulation adopted by the major player in Fintech about virtual banking regarding analyzing the clients.

    I want to say thank you to Professor Theodore Henry King CLARK for this opportunity.

    I enjoyed this course as it was easy to follow and the videos were short and precise. The part I enjoyed the most was the final project as that's where you really learn a lot. I advise to give yourself a few days before handing it in, so that you have enough time to do good research and create a nice final project to deliver. This will also be useful for your own future.

    The course is effective in general. I like the structure of the course, it is comprised of short videos instead of long ones. The lecturer and the guests speak clearly. The materials delivered are not too technical such that the audience can manage to understand the course without much relevant background/experience. The final project is both challenging and interesting.
