Quantitative finance is widely recognised as a rapidly expanding market for mathematical and scientific skills. Financial Mathematics is an application of mathematical methods to financial markets and risk management, using advanced computer technology to predict the behaviour of the markets and suggest strategies for investment. The focus of this MSc is on computational techniques for finance, on mathematical modelling and on mathematical and economic theories of finance.

On this course you will learn how to formulate problems from finance in mathematical terms, select and develop an appropriate numerical method, use programming skills to implement the method and compute results, and finally to present and interpret these results for a potential client.

2:1 degree (or equivalent) in Maths, Sciences, or Engineering. We will consider a 2:1 degree in a social science (e.g. Economics) on an individual basis, depending on the amount of mathematical subjects you have covered. You will need a fairly solid background in maths including an understanding of calculus, linear algebra, ordinary differential equations, probability and statistics. If your maths isn´t quite up to scratch, you should consider taking our one-year Pre-Masters Diploma from which you can progress straight onto the MSc.

English Language Requirements: IELTS 6.0 or equivalent. If your first language is not English, you may need to provide evidence of your English language ability. If you do not yet meet our requirements, our English Language Teaching Unit (ELTU) offers a range of courses to help you to improve your English to the necessary standard.
