Financial computing at Liverpool Uni

    Does anyone know anything about the financial computing course at Liverpool Uni - is it any good?

    Gosh - there is a specific financial programming course these days? I would be thinking less about the course and more about your future. There are specific techniques and knowledge required to work as a developer in finance. It is about low latency, high throughput systems pushing the boundaries of what is possible. If you can cut the mustard, the sort of pay on offer is obscene i.e. £600+ a day! But it is a cut throat world and you are more than likely going to have to live and work in London.

    If that is for you - go for it! If not, I am sure you will cover most of the bases to be a regular software dev.

    Good luck!
