    Presentación

    Financial services are not only one of the most dynamic sectors of the economy but also one of the two largest customers of IT. This MSc is jointly run with the Department of Economics in order to give you not only a command of the software technologies that financial institutions require to ´embrace the challenge of change´ but also the business context and organisational structures that IT systems need to support.

    We will concentrate on architectures for building scalable financial software systems, including technologies and techniques that are particularly relevant for the challenges of the financial market - predominantly a need to migrate from mission-critical, monolithic legacy systems to more flexible architectures that allow speedy reaction to customer and business partner’s needs. The technical aspect will be seen in the context of the business environment, where software engineers typically interact with a world of financial jargon and departments with specialised roles and needs.

    Industry Placement (optional)

    All of our Computer Science MSc degrees are available with an optional (usually paid) industry placement. If you take a ´with Industry´ degree, your qualification will be ´MSc in Software Engineering for Financial Services with Industry´

    These ´with industry´ degrees have been designed to stimulate your creativity and capacity to innovate, and ensure that you acquire key transferable skills.

    Individual Project

    Your course will conclude with an individual project (after your industry placement, if you have taken one). Using the experience gained during your course/placement, you will choose a challenging problem to work on and explore it by privately studying under the supervision of a member of the academic staff. (Students studying for a PGDip don´t complete a project.)


    The regular degree takes 12 months if you start in October, or 16 months if you start in January. The ´With Industry´ degree takes 21 months if you start in October, or 24 months if you start in January.

    NB. If you start your course in January, you will take Semester 2 before Semester 1.

    Salidas profesionales

    All our postgraduate Computer Science degrees are available ´with industry´: stimulating your creativity and capacity to innovate, and ensuring that you acquire key transferable skills. These courses will allow you to develop into a highly skilled professional, well versed in advanced methods and tools. Colleagues from industry participate directly in the delivery of some of the modules, including hands-on tutorials that allow you to use some of the tools and methodologies that are shaping the software development landscape.

    We have an open approach to collaboration with industry. We undertake joint projects, provide consultancy services, and organise events to connect you with potential employers. We also run an Industrial Advisory Board: its members are computer scientists who hold successful careers in industry and who help us ensure that your training is industrially relevant.
