Academic qualifications
The finance programmes are challenging technical courses.  To succeed on these courses you will need strong mathematics and statistics or econometrics ability, this could be demonstrated by a high 2.1 or 1st achieved in a relevant subject at Undergraduate level

You must also have achieved a good standard in mathematics, economics, and statistics/econometrics at undergraduate level. 

GMAT & GRE
We do not require a GMAT or GRE score but a well-balanced score (700+) may strengthen your application.

English not your first language
If English is not your first language, you must meet a minimum overall standard in a recognised test of English, examples are shown below. You must show a good balance across all sections of the test and it must have been taken within two years of starting the course. We will require your certificates as evidence.

Educated in the English language?
If you are a non-native speaker of English but have been educated entirely in English for your degree, and completed this within the last two years, this may satisfy the University of your language skills. For further information, please see the University’s page for English language requirements.

Pre-sessional English
We do not offer a pre-sessional English class as an alternative to achieving these scores. Any pre-sessional course should be viewed as a way of settling into living and studying in the UK and not as a way of boosting your score.
