Applicants to the MSc in Quantitative Finance will normally need to have:
- a good honours degree in a numerate subject (for example Physics, Mathematics, Statistics, Management Science) or equivalent qualification from a recognised university. Familiarity at undergraduate level with topics such as probability and statistics, calculus and linear algebra is essential
- demonstrable English language competence where their first language is not English
You will normally need a minimum of a 2:1 honours degree or equivalent (a GPA of at least 3.2 on a 4-point scale or B/B+ on a literal scale).
English language qualifications
If your first language is not English, you will need to provide evidence of your English language ability, normally via an IELTS or TOEFL score. The standard entry requirements are
- an IELTS score of 7.0 (with at least 6.0 in each element), or
- a TOEFL iBT score of 100 (UKBA requirements include minimum scores in the TOEFL test)
In some cases, overseas applicants are required to take the GMAT. However, if this applies you will be advised of this by the admissions team when they receive your full application.
