University of Wolverhampton has opted into the TEF and received a Silver award.
The BSc (Hons) Mathematics with Finance is a programme targeted at producing graduates for the financial sector with rigorous content and industry standard software embedded at all levels. The course contains content streams in applied mathematics and statistics which are extended through each year up until graduations. There is a strong emphasis on applications since it is these applications that serve to embed
employability skills in the curriculum.
There is also a strong emphasis on mathematical modelling. You will study modules including mechanics, mathematical modelling, numerical analysis and differential equations as you progress through your studies. At each stage Matlab is embedded in these modules to equip you with the skills to secure graduate
employment in this area. You will also be given modules in statistical modelling at each stage. Again there is an emphasis on industry standard software systems and you will learn to use SPSS and R during each year.
Each year you will take specialist modules in financial subject areas which are delivered by the University of Wolverhampton Business School. These modules have been specially chosen to complement the mathematics modules you will study, and they will provide you with knowledge and understanding of financial theories. Financial modules will range from Finance Principles to Quantitative Analysis for Economics and Finance, from Financial Reporting to Global Financial Management, to allow you to develop your own understandings of global citizenship applicable to local, national and international communities.
You will also have the opportunity to develop your programming skills using Python at various points in your studies. There are optional modules which allow you to specialise in your chosen area including operational research, financial mathematics, fluid dynamics and Galois theory. So, whether you aspire to further study at Ph.D. level or to enter the workplace and hit the ground running, this course has what is required. You will have the option to complete a one year placement between year 2 and year 3, and many mathematics students have taken advantage of this option.
Whatever your chosen subject area this course has something to offer you. The mathematics group at the University of Wolverhampton has consistently achieved high scores in the national student survey and our student support is second to none.
