If you want to study for a mathematics-related MSc course but don’t meet the full academic entry requirements, this programme will equip you with the mathematical knowledge and skills you need, specialising in financial and actuarial mathematics.

You’ll choose from a range of undergraduate modules offered in the School of Mathematics and Leeds University Business School, building a programme which fills the gaps in your knowledge and prepares you for postgraduate study in actuarial and financial mathematics.
