This programme combines a thorough training in statistics with modules in economics and finance. The different components of the degree programme reinforce one another to provide a coherent and wide-ranging foundation in modern quantitative techniques useful for a career in finance.
In each year of your degree you will take a number of individual modules, normally valued at 0.5 or 1.0 credits, adding up to a total of 4.0 credits for the year. Modules are assessed in the academic year in which they are taken. The balance of compulsory and optional modules varies from programme to programme and year to year. A 1.0 credit is considered equivalent to 15 credits in the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS).
The statistics courses are drawn from the Statistics BSc degree. Your first year will include mathematics, statistics and some computing, which will be followed by increasing specialisation in statistics in the second and third years. The economics and finance components include a foundation in micro- and macroeconomics and financial accounting, and a range of options including modules in Money and Banking, Financial Computing, Econometrics and Economics of Finance.
