We require a First or Upper Second class honours degree (2:1, with 60% average) from a UK university or the overseas equivalent.
You need a degree in finance or economics. You must have taken a significant number of finance and quantitative courses during your degree (accounting is not considered to be finance). You must be taking a major or specialisation in finance in your final year and need to achieve top-level results in final year finance subjects. You must also demonstrate a solid background in quantitative skills, econometrics or maths.
Applicants studying degrees in business administration can be considered but must be able to demonstrate a very strong background in finance throughout their degree and a final year major or specialisation in finance (as outlined above). Due to competition for places, we give preference to applicants with a bachelor degree in finance or economics. Applicants studying degrees in mathematics, statistics, physics, engineering, actuarial or decision sciences might wish to consider our MSc Quantitative Finance course. You will need to submit a new application for this programme online.
A GMAT/GRE is not required to apply for this course but in some cases The Admissions Team may request this after the initial review of your application if your degree does not contain enough relevant quantitative modules.
