If you enjoy the satisfaction of applying real-world mathematical knowledge and are interested in a career in finance, this practical course will help you stand out to top employers. Our lecturers are passionate about their subject, with modules informed by cutting-edge research; you'll learn statistical skills from leading mathematicians. Shape your degree to suit your interests and pick from an extensive range of topics alongside your core units in Financial Mathematics and Financial Risk Management. The first year provides a broad background in pure, applied and statistical mathematics via a range of compulsory units. You'll cover material in lectures and small-group tutorials, with the freedom to explore a range of topics in collaboration with your personal tutor and fellow students. From year two you will focus more on units that relate to statistics for use in finance, although there is still scope to take some units from other areas. As you move through the course you will gain academic independence, moving from small-group tutorial teaching in year one to an optional, independent project in your final year.
