In certain cases we may also consider a 2:2, which would usually come with the condition that you complete the online pre-sessional course in Mathematical Foundations of Quantitative Finance with a final grade of at least 60%. If your undergraduate degree is in business, finance or economics with sufficiently strong mathematics background (equivalent to at least two years of university level mathematics courses), then we encourage you to apply also. We welcome students with recent degrees as well as those with work experience in related disciplines and professions.
