What will I learn?

The first two years provide a heavy diet of mathematics and humanities courses to provide a good base of the rigorous specialist applications in year 3 & 4. A few profession specific courses are provided in year 1 and 2 to provide a good understanding and flavor of the financial and risk management field. Most of the specialist courses at this level are theoretical or apply basic level calculus (differentiation, integration) and statistics. The student will gain awareness of application of these technical concepts in the third year work placement in a business setting with professionals. This professional and academic development continues in the fourth year with case studies and design of practical models as well as public and guest lecturers from industry.
