An undergraduate degree equivalent to class 2:1 or higher UK degree in a discipline with sufficient background in mathematical sciences, economics and finance. We are looking for a minimum of two years (4 semesters or 6 trimesters) of university level courses in mathematics, and a similar amount and level of courses in economics and finance, with good marks.
Competence in computing is desirable.
Professional experience in quantitative finance will be an advantage, but not a prerequisite, which can compensate to some extent for limited formal training.
Each applicant will be assessed individually to ensure that his/her academic and/or professional background is appropriate. Documented professional track record in quantitative finance will be considered alongside academic record.
Overseas students will also need to demonstrate a good command of English by meeting the criteria under Language Requirements.
