Program description

Financial Mathematics (Including Foundation Year) BSc (Hons) (Full-time)

Why study this course?

Our Financial Mathematics (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) is the ideal choice if you’d like to gain a finance-orientated degree to make your first step towards a career in finance, financial mathematics or banking, but don’t have the necessary requirements to enter the standard three-year undergraduate course.

This four-year course has a built-in foundation year to prepare you for study and assessments at undergraduate level. During this year you’ll gain a range of fundamental skills in mathematics and its applications, not only in finance but also in programming and computer security.

Our Financial Mathematics (including foundation year) BSc (Hons) is designed to provide you with expertise in financial mathematics, as well as mathematical processes in problem solving, analysis and evaluation.

Throughout your degree you will receive support from your tutors and other specialist staff. There will be opportunities to attend skill building workshops, including essay writing, interview and job application skills.

Your foundation year will be shared with students from other foundation year courses and therefore you’ll find opportunities to learn about different disciplines within mathematics and computing. The foundation year is diagnostic in nature and it will allow you to discover other disciplines within the School of Computing and Digital Media. You’ll learn how to use programming language, get introduced to theoretical concepts underpinning computer software design, gain fundamental knowledge corresponding to cyber security and learn how to solve mathematical problems.

During the subsequent three years of your bachelor’s course you’ll study the same course content and have the same choice of modules as students on the standard three-year course. Visit our Financial Mathematics BSc course page to learn more about what you’ll study during those years.

If, at the end of your foundation year, you find that you’d like to specialise in a different discipline within the School there will be flexibility to allow you to do this.

Admission requirements

In addition to the University's standard entry requirements, you should have:

  • At least one A level (or a minimum of 32 UCAS points from an equivalent Level 3 qualification, eg BTEC Subsidiary/National/BTEC Extended Diploma)
  • English Language and Mathematics GCSE at grade C/4 or above (or equivalent, eg Functional Skills at Level 2) – if you meet UCAS points criteria but obtained a grade D/3 in English and/or Maths at GCSE you may be offered a University test in these areas
