Master's degree in Finance - what are the entry requirements?

I've got a Bachelor degree in Political Science and International Relations. I want to do a Masters in Finance. Will I be allowed to do so? What are the entry requirements?

Hi there,

Use our course chooser to look at Masters in Finance courses in more detail. Use the search tool to narrow down and once you identify courses of interest just click on them to find out their entry requirements.


A quick bit of research suggests that ideally you'd need a Bachelors degree in a relevant subject. Failing that you'll need to demonstrate strong analytical and quantitative skills.

We'd recommend getting directly in touch with universities admissions offices. Explain your situation and see what you need to do to help guarantee yourself a place on the course.

Best of luck!
