Course summary

Overview

The Graduate Certificate is designed for applicants who wish to study one of our MSc programmes but who have not studied a sufficient level of mathematics or statistics at University to meet the entry requirements. Following this programme will allow you to gain the required knowledge and skills of mathematics and statistics to prepare you for undertaking one of the following MSc programmes.

Actuarial Mathematics and Statistics Department

MSc in Actuarial Science; MSc in Financial Mathematics; MSc in Quantitative Financial Risk Management, MSc in Quantitative Financial Engineering.

Mathematics Department

MSc in Applied Mathematical Sciences (all streams); MSc in Computational Mathematics; MSc in Mathematics, MSc in Quantitative Finance and Mathematics.

Most students will follow a non-graduating programme of study and do not complete the higher level requirements for the award of a PG Certificate or PG Diploma, although this is possible provided you have qualifications in mathematics equivalent to level 8 or beyond.

The exact courses you will study will depend on:

the level of mathematics you have studied at University level to date;
the specific MSc you are planning to study the following year.

Students will also achieve PgCert and PgDip awards during this course.
