Mathematics and Financial Modelling (MSc)

Course Description

Birkbeck's MSc in Mathematics and Financial Modelling is a part-time programme that combines the study of mathematics at postgraduate level with a strong component of financial mathematics and modelling. The programme offers you the chance to study a range of modules in pure and applicable mathematics, as well as financial mathematics, thus giving you the opportunity to increase your knowledge and abilities in these areas. Depending on your choices, you will take between 6 and 8 modules, allowing you to study several different topics in depth, and to focus on the areas that interest you most.

You will also learn key mathematical research skills and methods, including how to conduct a literature search, how to read mathematical papers, and how to communicate your ideas and findings, both in writing and orally. The second year of the programme includes a dissertation that allows you to engage in a sustained investigation of an area that interests you within statistics and/or finance, implementing what you have learned from the taught modules on the programme and combining this knowledge with new research and analysis.

Over 2 years, you will also acquire the skills to pursue your interests in mathematics and financial modelling to a higher level and beyond the classroom, whether for a formal MPhil/PhD research degree, for your career, or simply because you have a passion for the subject.

The programme's distinct mode of part-time evening study means that this is one of the very few taught MSc programmes in mathematics and financial modelling that can be taken by busy people who are balancing study with work and other personal and family commitments.

Entry Requirements

The entrance requirement is a second-class degree in mathematics. Applicants may be emailed an entrance test to gauge their suitability for the programme. If you don't have a mathematics degree then, depending on your level of knowledge, you may be able to instead take Birkbeck's Graduate Certificate or Graduate Diploma in Mathematics as a qualifying course. If English is not your first language or you have not previously studied in English, our usual requirement is the equivalent of an International English Language Testing System (IELTS Academic Test) score of 6.5, with not less than 6.0 in each of the sub-tests.
