This course is designed to give you the numerical skills and specialist knowledge for a range of roles in finance. You'll learn the tools, principles and practices of the finance industry, as well as the fundamental mathematics behind banking, insurance, accountancy and more.
We have a small but focused number of modules in the first year, that cover all the essentials you'll need for the rest of your degree. You'll also have modules on finance to choose from, covering topics that include accounting, economic analysis, and financial management.
In the second year, you'll continue to build a powerful toolbox of mathematical techniques which you can apply to increasingly complex problems. You'll be able to examine more advanced topics in finance too such as microeconomics, macroeconomics, econometrics and corporate finance.
Some module options include more project work. This gives you the chance to put your mathematics skills into practice in different contexts and scenarios that you might encounter when you start work after graduation. A module on careers development gives you the chance to find out about different career paths, learn about potential employers, write an impressive CV and sell yourself at job interviews.
By third year, you'll have the skills, knowledge and experience to go in lots of different directions in finance and mathematics. We'll give you lots of optional modules to choose from, so you can study the topics that are most useful to the career path you want to take or that you enjoy the most.
