Hi,

I'm currently holding an offer from Oxford for MSc in Mathematical and Computational Finance and from Imperial College London for MSc in Mathematics and Finance. Hope to know what's people's opinion on the two courses?

Specifically which one would be a better one to break into the City as a quant? (Currently undergrad at Warwick University, but with no internship at any BB)

Also does anyone know how the MSc Thesis with a firm works at Imperial? Does everyone get an internship/project with some bank? More interested into how many of these projects actually change into offers afterwards..

Thank a lot for the help!

Oxford. The Oxford name -- alone -- will bring you places not only in the UK but throughout the world.

Thanks guys! I've decided to go with Oxford at the end, it's just a better fit for me. I do realise that Imperial has a slightly stronger course, but if I ever want to work outside UK, coming from Oxford will make my life a lot easier.
