Selected entry requirements

Academic entry qualification overview

We normally look for a UK bachelor degree with first or upper second class honours, or the overseas equivalent, with excellent results in finance and quantitative subjects (accounting is not considered to be finance). 

When assessing your academic record, we take into account your grade average, position in class, references and the standing of the institution where you studied your qualification. 

You need to have studied or be studying a degree in finance, economics, engineering, actuarial science, physics or another related degree, and have taken or be taking a significant number of modules in quantitative subjects, such as differential equations, econometrics or mathematical statistics in the final year of your degree.  You will need excellent results in these subjects.
