This very flexible single-honours degree programme is designed for those who are interested in learning about some of the recent applications of mathematics to the financial sector and pursuing a career in this area. It enables you to acquire a working knowledge of models and procedures and modern financial mathematics as it is applied in banks, broker companies and insurance companies as well as in the financial departments of national and international companies. You get good all-round mathematical knowledge together with the ability to experience more specialised results, methods and ideas.
A core of basic mathematics provides you with the fundamental mathematical knowledge and skills, and the basis for more advanced work later on. The core material is covered in the first three semesters, up to the mid-point of your second year. You develop your capacity to learn and apply mathematical ideas, to understand the significance and power of mathematics, and to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of those mathematical topics that any employer would expect of a mathematics graduate. After your first three semesters, you chose your lecture courses from a widening range of options in order that you can pursue whichever areas of mathematics most interest you. You can choose to do a final year project on a mathematical topic supervised by a member of staff.
Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2019 will be £9,250 per annum. Tuition fees for international students will be £23,000 per annum. For general information please see the undergraduate finance pages.
