How to apply

How to apply for a financial mathematics MSc programme.

Applications for study

We strongly recommend you submit your completed application as early as possible, particularly if you are also applying for funding or will require a visa. We may consider late applications if we have places available.

Due to high demand for these programmes, the School operates a number of selection deadlines. We will make a small number of offers to the most outstanding candidates on an ongoing basis, but hold the majority of applications until the next selection deadline. 

Apply for full-time or part-time study via the Postgraduate Degree Finder:

If you wish to study part-time over two years it is recommended that you discuss the practicality of doing so with the Academic Selector by contacting them on cmfmsc@ed.ac.uk or fmomsc@ed.ac.uk

 

Eligibility

Full entry requirements for these programmes are detailed on the Postgraduate Degree Finder.

You are required to have a certain level of mathematical, computational and English skills described in detail in the eligibility section. Note that to apply it is not necessary to satisfy the English language requirements at the time of submitting your application. An offer conditional on providing a satisfactory language certificate can be made.

 

References

Note that only one reference is now required. If you graduated within the past three years then this should be an academic reference, otherwise an employment reference is sufficient. During the application process, it may appear that the details of two referees are required but this can be circumvented by entering the details of a single referee twice.
