Mathematics and statistics requirements for Applied Finance study

If you have not studied mathematics and statistics to at least 100-level, we recommend you get in touch as early as possible.

You will likely be required to take some preparatory classes, but we can suggest remedial work, and carefully managed catch-up work in the early stages will help ease the pain.

What will your study workload be?

For students working fulltime we recommend one paper at a time, at least initially.

Once you are used to the workload you can consider increasing that to two a trimester, but many students find one paper at a time an appropriate workload.

We advise most fulltime students to enrol in at least one weekly lecture paper to better spread your workload.
