    Hey,

    I've been looking at a couple of MSc Finance and most of them state that they would look place some emphasis on quantitative modules.

    I'm currently doing my BSc in Accounting and Finance. And while they there are a few numbers related modules, I don't know how quantitative I would consider them.

    Does anyone know how the universities consider the these modules when assessing your application?

    Cheers!

    If they were bothered about it they would mention it in their entry requirements. You can always email and ask.

    I have emailed them, unfortunately, they said that they couldn't assess my modules unless I made a formal application. Thus I was hoping someone in the forum might have had experience with this; I.e. Applying and getting accepted with a non-Mathematics or Economics based degree, etc.

    Well then apply and find out. You have nothing to lose unless there's an application fee. I'd be very wary of basing my decision to apply somewhere or not based on what someone on here says.

    I would think A&F --> F would be a perfectly logical progression.

    That's what I thought as well, a lot of schools seem to prefer economics or mathematics for an undergraduate degree. Warwick even replied saying that I wouldn't be considered if I didn't have a strong economics foundation as part of my course.
