At the minimum a high 2:2 or overseas equivalent is required. (A good performance in a higher degree such as a Masters will also be accepted).
Any degree discipline is acceptable, but students must have a satisfactory existing level of mathematics and statistics. 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.
Weight will be given to relevant work experience and professional qualifications but neither is necessary to be accepted onto this course.
