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.
You will cover core topics in the first year, developing your capacity to learn and apply mathematical ideas.
