Hi there :hello:


There are many different factors to consider when making the decision of which university to attend.

I would recommend that you start by comparing the course content. Look beyond the course title at the content of the course. Topics will be different across universities, depending on academic expertise, course accreditation and international partnerships.

Other things to consider include:

What student accommodation is available?
What career prospectus does the university have?
Are there any work experience opportunities?
What support does the university offer? (Counselling, writing mentors, employability service etc.)
Are there any part time jobs on campus?
What extracurricular activities are available?
What is the cost of living in each of the cities?
What facilities does the university offer? (Library, gym, laundrette, catering etc.)
University stats

You want to make sure that you make the best decision for yourself and the one that will enable you to focus on your studies, socialise and most importantly... be happy!

I hope this helps.

Good luck with you decision

Amy

Hi there!

So great to hear you're considering studying at Kent!
It can be tricky deciding between different universities, but as has already been said, the best first step is to compare the course content and structure to see which one appeals to you the most
Also, comparing the student life and what support is available for careers and wellbeing can be useful too. You know better than anyone what kind of support would be beneficial to you so you can make the most of your degree.
I'm an undergraduate student, but I am happy to help answer any questions you have about student life at Kent. Alternatively, if you would like a postgraduate take on life at Kent then I'd recommend contacting Kent's postgrad rep Postgrad Rep Shelly

I hope that this was useful! Best of luck with your decision

Hello devamrishi,

Lancaster’s MSc Quantitative Finance is aimed at students who have a high level of mathematical ability (for instance, if you studied Maths, Engineering, physics etc as your undergraduate degree). It is taught across the departments of Economics, Maths, Management Science and Accounting and Finance.

Core Modules include topics such as Financial Stochastic Processes, Spreadsheet Modelling for Quantitative Finance and Statistical Methods for Financial and Economic Applications. Optional modules then include topics like Behavioural Finance, Forecasting and Optimisation and Heuristics.

Another thing to bear in mind is that we limit the class size, in order to ensure that you have a high-quality learning experience.

In the Management School we have a dedicated Careers team who are able to advise students thinking of applying for jobs in different sectors of business. We also have a specialist in financial service careers who can share his experience and advise with those thinking of going into the world of finance.

If you would like to find out more, I would recommend that you email us on [email protected]. We can answer any questions you have, advise you on which of our courses might be right for you, and might be able to put you in touch with one of our current students.


I hope this information was useful and let me know if you have any questions.
