    About the Course:
    The analysis of financial phenomena relies on a firm mathematical foundation. You will especially need to understand how numerical systems can persistently undergo change and how to handle mathematically the randomness which is in-built in the financial system. In Years One and Two, you will study several branches of mathematics, especially probability, statistics, and advanced calculus. You will also develop your understanding of economics, accounting and computer programming, and be introduced to applications of mathematics in finance.

    In Year Three, you will start to study how random processes can develop over time, and apply these mathematical methods to examine how financial phenomena can evolve. You’ll also learn how to employ sophisticated statistical techniques that are used to investigate large quantities of financial data. Other modules you’ll study will introduce the valuation of financial products. You'll participate in an INTRA work placement in second semester.

    In the second semester of your third year, you'll participate in INTRA, an internship scheme placing students in relevant commercial employment. This is an opportunity for you to gain experience in financial firms and build industry connections.

    In Year Four, you'll study high-level modern probability, and then apply it to design and price complex financial products such as derivatives and swaps, as well as developing cutting-edge and data-driven models of the stock market. Portfolio management and investor behavior are also investigated in order to quantify and manage risk. The mathematical techniques you will master will range from the highly theoretical to the highly practical. Some of these will require large scale computer simulations which are needed to reliably price the most exotic financial securities.

    Note: Students enter the BSc in Financial Mathematics through DC127 Common Entry into Actuarial and Financial Mathematics. The first two years of the Financial Mathematics programme are common to the BSc in Actuarial Mathematics programme, and students may be recommended for exemption from some of the professional actuarial examinations.
