Entry requirements

  • A 2.1 or first (or equivalent) degree in a relevant undergraduate subject from a UK university or an equivalent qualification from a globally recognised institution.

Candidates who have aspirations in finance and have studied quantitative undergraduate degrees, such as Mathematics, Statistics, Physics, Computer Science, Data Science, and Engineering are also encouraged to apply, especially those who have opted for finance electives in those programmes.

For those applicants with a quantitative degree at undergraduate level, but who have not yet studied Finance, we offer a menu of online supplementary courses that you can take at your own pace in Summer 2024. These will provide you with additional skills and knowledge in Finance for you to succeed on the course. We may recommend or require engagement with any or all of these supplementary courses depending on your academic background.
