The finance programmes are challenging technical courses. To succeed on these courses you will need strong mathematics and statistics or econometrics ability, this could be demonstrated by a high 2.1 or 1st achieved in a relevant subject at Undergraduate level.
Your degree would normally need to be in economics, or have had a substantial economics component, and you must have taken courses in microeconomic and macroeconomic theory at an intermediate level. Competencies are also required in calculus, statistics and econometrics.
You are unlikely to be considered if your degree is in business, commerce, or other similar areas as it is unlikely that you will have had sufficient formal training.

This course is ideal for you if you already have a strong grounding in economics, are highly numerate, and want to learn to apply your knowledge to finance. You will be considering jobs in the City or in the capital markets of your own country, in areas such as asset management, corporate finance, trading, financial regulation, and economic and financial consulting and central banking.
