Our Mathematics with Management & Finance BSc offers you the opportunity to study mathematics at an advanced level, and at the same time develop an understanding of the principles and developing trends in management and finance. This combination of modules is particularly valuable if you are considering a future career in management, especially in the finance sector. In your third year you will focus on topics relevant to financial mathematics. You may transfer to the four year Mathematics with Management & Finance with a Year Abroad BSc pathway and spend your third year studying abroad, before returning to complete a final year with us. This depends on you reaching a certain grade average and being accepted by a partner university.

Clara, Mathematics BSc

Our course is designed for students who want to study mathematics at degree level, but who also plan to work in a managerial role, especially in the financial sector. The mathematical part of the course will give you a foundation in all branches of mathematics, including algebra, analysis, statistics, geometry, probability and number theory. As you progress through the course you will focus more on topics which are specifically relevant to financial mathematics. About a quarter of this course focuses on management topics, including accounting, communication, marketing, economics and human resource management. During your course you will have the opportunity to specialise in various areas by choosing from a range of optional modules.

The following are not required for entry, but you may find these useful further preparation for this degree:

  • Study of mathematical mechanics and statistics.
  • We also strongly encourage you to extend your mathematical interests by studying for the Advanced Extension Award (AEA Mathematicss) or Sixth Term Examination Programme (STEP).

 

Contextual consideration

We make contextual offers for this programme, which can be found in the entry requirements. As part of the assessment process, we take into account contextual information to gain a more complete picture of each application. More information can be found on the Contextualised admissions website.

Deferrals

Applications can be submitted for deferred entry by choosing the appropriate year of entry on the UCAS application.

If your circumstances change and, therefore, you need to request a deferral after an offer has been made, then we can generally permit these for this programme. However, each deferral request will be considered on a case-by-case basis and we reserve the right to decline any post-offer deferral request. Requests should be submitted via a message on King’s Apply with an explanation of the reason for making the request.

Please note, second deferral requests will only be considered where the request is due to extreme unforeseen extenuating circumstances, for example, health reasons. We are unable to permit deferral requests that go beyond two years and you would need to apply again. This is with the exception of deferrals which are due to military/national service.

Foundation courses

Applicants studying Foundation Year programmes in the UK are welcome to apply for this programme. Foundation programmes from other universities and further education providers in the UK are considered on a case-by-case basis. Whether or not we can consider a particular foundation year as suitable for study at King's depends on the content of the syllabus and modules studied. In the past we have accepted foundation programmes from a number of other institutions.

We are unable to accept Foundation programmes that are integrated as part of a main degree at another institution. These may be called Year 0 or Integrated Foundations. We are also unable to accept non-UK Foundation courses.

Once you have submitted an application, the Admissions Office may contact you via King's Apply to ask for further details on your qualification, such as a list of modules and course specifications.

The King's International Foundation Programme has guaranteed pathways available for progression onto our undergraduate degree programmes, and information can be found on the website.

Graduates

Our general entry requirements are based on A-level or equivalent. However, where an applicant is completing/has completed a degree, we are able to consider the degree study as part of the assessment of the application.

Generally, we would consider a minimum of a UK Bachelor degree with a 2:1 grade profile (or overseas equivalent) as meeting the entry requirements for our undergraduate degrees. However, those who have achieved/are predicted a high 2:1 or a First may be considered more competitive.

Where a programme has subject requirements, these will still need to have been met. If you have not met the subject requirements via A-level (or equivalent) then we may be able to consider the content within your degree. We would be looking for significant study of the subject across the degree programme with a 2:1 or above grading on those modules.

Once you have submitted an application, the Admissions Office may contact you via King's Apply to ask for further details on your degree study.

Personal Statement

Your personal statement is one of the many factors in the overall assessment of your application, and is your opportunity to introduce yourself to the university and inform us of your commitment to the programme and how the programme fits into your career plans, as well as any work experience or extracurricular activities you have done.

Resits

We are able to consider applicants who have retaken or are retaking their qualifications.

Transfers

Transfers into this programme are not permitted. 

Help for international applicants

Pre-sessional courses

If you have an offer from King's, but English isn't your first language, we have courses to help you.

Teaching methods - what to expect

Typically, one credit equates to 10 hours of work, e.g. 150 hours work for a 15 credit module.

King’s Business School will teach your management modules. It fosters an interdisciplinary, social science ethos with a highly stimulating intellectual environment that attracts leading scholars.

Assessment

  • Written examinations
  • Coursework
  • Class tests
  • Quizzes

Structure

Please note that modules with a practical component will be capped due to educational requirements, which may mean that we cannot guarantee a place to all students who elect to study this module.

Employability

A degree in mathematics is one of the most flexible qualifications you can obtain, and as a result our graduates are among the best paid. Many mathematics graduates become statisticians, actuaries, scientists, accountants, and so on. More and more often they are also going into careers in life sciences or the City, and the management and finance aspects of this course will put you in the ideal position to follow a career in finance. There is also considerable demand for graduates of mathematics in the teaching profession.
