Mathematical Finance with Conversion Year MSc

Study Details

MSc 2 years Full-time

Candidates who have a good undergraduate (BSc) degree or equivalent but whose mathematical background is insufficient for direct entry to the MSc programme may apply for a place on the Conversion Year for the MSc in Mathematical Finance.

A place on the Conversion Year is normally offered together with a conditional offer for the MSc in Mathematical Finance in the following year, subject to successfully completing the Conversion Year. The normal progression requirement for progression from the Conversion Year to the MSc in Mathematical Finance is a final weighted average at 2:1 level (60% or above) for the modules taken in the Conversion Year.

Entry Requirements

Candidates are expected to have a good Honours undergraduate degree in a mathematics-based subject (in a widely understood sense, including certain degrees in science). If your undergraduate degree is in business, finance or economics with sufficiently strong mathematics background (equivalent to at least 2 years of university level mathematics courses), then we encourage you to apply also. We welcome students with recent degrees as well as those with work experience in related disciplines and professions.
If you are a non-native English speaking applicant you must provide evidence of your English language ability. You need to show enough fluency in all aspects of English (reading, writing, speaking and listening) to the required level of the course you're applying to. For more information, see:
