Mathematical Finance Short Courses

What are short courses?

Advanced modules of the MSc in Mathematical Finance are available as 'short courses' to those not registered on this programme.  Each of the advanced modules explores a key area in contemporary Mathematical Finance.  

No proof of qualification is required to attend an advanced  module as a short course but, to benefit fully, short course students should have background knowledge in mathematical finance such as that covered in the core modules of the MSc. "Short course" students are not assessed.  At the end of the module they are issued with a certificate of attendance.

The programme of advanced modules is published during the summer each year.  Please note however, that the content of the modules is subject to small change.
