University of York
Mathematics (with foundation phase)
The Conversion Year consists of a selection of modules to the value of 120 credits being part of the undergraduate degree in Mathematics and Finance at the University of York, with emphasis on the mathematical aspects of the course. Module choice is subject to prerequisites, timetabling constraints, availability of modules, and is subject to approval by the Programme Director.
Upper 2nd Class or 1st Class undergraduate (BSc) degree or equivalent in a mathematically based discipline such as chemistry, computer science, engineering, mathematics, physics or statistics, but candidates with a sufficiently good mathematical background from other areas such as biology, economics or finance will also be considered. As the conversion year is an intensive course, potential students should be able demonstrate consistently high academic achievement in their undergraduate degree programme. The normal progression requirement for progression from the conversion year to the MSc in Mathematical Finance is a final weighted average at 2.1 level (60% or above) for the modules taken in the conversion year.
Core modules include: Calculus; core algebra; introduction to probability and statistics; statistics 1; applied probability; differential equations; mathematical finance I; introduction to applied mathematics; real analysis; linear algebra; vector calculus; statistics 2; numerical analysis and scientific computing; mathematical finance 2.
