Information about the Computational Mathematical Finance study programme.

To be awarded the MSc degree students need to obtain a total of 180 credits. This can be done either through full-time study in 12 months or through part-time study in 24 months. 

Full time students take courses during semester 1 and 2 to the value of 120 credits. Part-time students take courses during semesters 1 and 2 of years 1 and 2 to the value of 120 credits. Compulsory course units comprise 85 credits of the 120. Successful performance in these courses (assessed via coursework or examinations or both) permits the student to start work on a three month dissertation project (60 credits) for the award of the MSc degree.

Full-time study

This is the standard choice for students wishing to finish their degree in 12 months. The effort required to complete the degree is roughly equivalent to being employed full time. Please see the Full-time study section of the website for more details including a list of courses. 

Part-time study

This study mode is designed to enable working professionals to obtain the degree while being in employment. The full degree is obtained over a period of 24 months. Please see the Part-time study section of the website for more details including a list of courses.
