    Hi guys,

    I am currently a 3rd year chemical engineer at the University of Birmingham (Averaging about 85% in all my modules), I have offers from Oxford for "MCF" and "Mathematical Modelling and Scientific Computing", is it possible for me to get into a quant position after these courses? If so, which course is superior? I am conflicted because I initially wanted to apply to a mathematical modelling course because I love that kind of thing but I hear MCF is better in respect to getting good jobs after graduating.

    If anyone can answer my queries I'd be grateful.

    Thanks,

    On quant net there's plenty of people who just do masters and go straight in

    That'll be the cheapest one in the UK. If your wallet can stretch, I'd check out Princeton's Master of Financial Engineering course or some of the more quant-y courses at the European business schools (ESSEC, HEC, St Gallen, Bocconi etc).
