Course summary

The depth of maths taught in our mathematical finance master's will give you the skills you need to succeed in the finance sector. It is also the ideal preparation if you want to pursue a research career in stochastic analysis, financial mathematics and other relevant areas.

The programme is designed to provide you with the strong mathematical skills, computational techniques and finance background needed to work in the financial sector. It could also open up careers in investment banking, hedge funds, insurance companies and the finance departments of large corporations.

Drawing on the expertise within our Department of Mathematical Sciences, you will undertake core specialised modules in stochastic analysis and measure theory, whilst also choosing optional modules covering wide-ranging topics of interest, including corporate finance, functional analysis and asset management. This makes the programme suitable both for those who are interested in an academic pathway (eg progressing to a PhD), as well as students seeking to enter the quantitative finance sector.

In addition, the 14 weeks at the end of the programme are devoted to an individual project (worth 60 credits), which you will complete under the supervision of your departmental supervisor - an excellent opportunity to connect with cutting-edge research ideas, as well as to build personal links with the finance industry.

As a postgraduate student, you will enjoy access to our computing laboratory which boasts a dedicated team to help you with any IT queries. You will also benefit from our £4 million refurbished department building, which has a spacious student activity area and dedicated state-of-the-art resources.
