The financial services industry makes a significant contribution to the UK economy, and effective financial management is vital to the success of any business. That's why skilled financial mathematicians are in such high demand.
This course gives you a broad knowledge of financial mathematics in accountancy practice, the operations of financial markets, and the wider business environment, so that when you graduate you'll have a solid but flexible knowledge base that will put you in a fantastic position to get the job that you want.
You'll study in an informal, supportive environment which we believe is one of the reasons that pass rates on this course are so high. A large proportion of mathematics students graduate with at least an upper-second-class degree. Our courses have consistently scored highly in the National Student Survey.
All of our undergraduate courses are accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, which is our guarantee that this course is current and relevant to the needs of business. Our close links with industry mean that, if you wish, you'll have the opportunity to take up job placements with some of the world's leading companies.

This is a great opportunity for you to further your research interests and contribute to the academic activities of the Mathematics department.
