We normally ask for a minimum of a high 2:1 degree in Mathematics or a good First Class degree in a physical science with a strong mathematical content, i.e. several modules of mathematics with an emphasis on analysis, probability theory and differential equations.
Months of entry
This course aims to provide you with everything you need to get into this area at a level where you can understand – and contribute to – industry practice and the latest research.
To do this, the courses we offer are orientated in different ways. Some give the necessary finance and economics background; others provide instruction in fundamental mathematics (stochastic analysis, partial differential equations, etc.). Scientific computing (object-orientated programming in C++) is an integral part of the programme.
