Mathematics plays a crucial role in the financial services industry. Our Financial Mathematics BSc degree equips graduates with knowledge and understanding of both financial matters and the relevant mathematics.
Our Financial Mathematics BSc (Hons) degree provides thorough training in aspects of both financial matters and the relevant mathematics. There are a range of modules in economics, finance and mathematics, including specialist modules that deal directly with applications of mathematics in finance.
Through a comprehensive course that includes modules in probability theory, stochastic processes, statistical modelling, corporate finance, and asset pricing, our Financial Mathematics degree will equip you with an understanding of methodologies and techniques that are essential for jobs in banking and finance.
No prior knowledge of economics or finance is necessary as the course provides a comprehensive introduction to macro- and microeconomics and the principles of finance.
For a full list of areas studied, see the 'What You'll Study' section of the course page on our website.
Depending on the nature of the material, some modules are assessed by a mixture of coursework and examination (for example 25% coursework and 75% examination), whilst other modules are assessed 100% by coursework or 100% by examination.
Coursework is based on a variety of tasks including individual essays, projects, laboratory work, contribution in tutorials, group work and presentations.
