We welcome students from a variety of disciplines, including Mathematics, Sciences, Engineering, Economics and Finance. Students from less quantitatively oriented degrees, such as Accounting, Management and Politics, are also welcome if they have focused on the more quantitative elements of those degrees.
  • Work experience and professional qualifications - Weight will be given to relevant work experience and professional qualifications, particuarly CFA, but neither is necessary to be accepted onto this course.

  • Other aspects of your application - All aspects of your application will be taken into consideration so our decision to make you an offer is not exclusively based on the criteria above.
