Course description

This joint-honours degree programme is aimed at mathematics students with a particular interest in financial systems. It includes the same course units in financial mathematics as Mathematics with Financial Mathematics (UCAS code G1NH), but has a greater component of Accounting and Finance. This provides a foundation in finance including the study of international financial markets and multinational corporate finance. Topics presently covered include Financial Reporting and Investment Analysis. You study Mathematics and Finance in the ratio 3:1. A core of basic mathematics provides you with the fundamental mathematical knowledge and skills, and the basis for more advanced work later on. The core material is covered in the first three semesters, up to the mid-point of your second year. You develop your capacity to learn and apply mathematical ideas, to understand the significance and power of mathematics, and to acquire a thorough knowledge and understanding of those mathematical topics that any employer would expect of a mathematics graduate. After your first three semesters, you chose your lecture courses from a widening range of options in order that you can pursue whichever areas of mathematics most interest you.  You can also choose to do a final year project on a mathematical topic supervised by a member of staff.

Fees

Tuition fees for home/EU students commencing their studies in September 2018 will be £9,250. Future inflationary increases may also be applied to each subsequent year of your course, subject to government regulations on fee increases.
