Postgraduate Study in Financial Mathematics
If you are thinking of studying for an MSc in Financial Mathematics in the major financial centre of London, then consider King's College London.
In the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise, the KCL Applied Mathematics unit (containing Financial Mathematics) had 65% of its research judged "internationally excellent" or "world leading", the highest such figure recorded by any London college in applied mathematics, and close to the UK national maximum in applied mathematics of 75%.
More information about the MSc programme can be found in the prospectus.
Applying for a PhD involves the submission of a completed on-line application form supported by two references. For UK applicants, it may also involve an informal interview.
You will probably first wish to find out about the group and staff research interests first.
For the individual research interests of the members of the group, have a look at our Members page.
A general outline of the group's research activity in mathematical finance can be found in Research Focus. Visit our PhD students page to learn more about our current postgraduate students.
More information about PhD studies in the Department of Mathematics can be found in the prospectus.
London Graduate School in Mathematical Finance
The London Graduate School in Mathematical Finance is a consortium of the mathematical finance groups of Birkbeck College, Brunel, Imperial College, King’s College, LSE and UCL. Its main purpose is to provide a programme of advanced courses in mathematical financial, primarily but not exclusively for first year PhD students in the various groups. PhD students at King's are able to participate in their courses, and some courses are taught by members of the KCL Financial Mathematics group.
Please see the Departmental funding and fees webpage for further information.
