An excellent degree equivalent to a UK Bachelor's degree from a reputable university in a discipline with a strong quantitative orientation (e.g. industrial or general engineering, operations research, statistics, physics, mathematics, mathematical economics). In most countries the equivalent to a UK Bachelor is a first degree (Bachelor, Licentiate) but from some countries a master's level degree may be required. The minimum standard required is a First Class Honours or equivalent, which translates in most countries into 'A' grades. From the USA we expect a CGPA of 3.7/4.0. We take the standing and selectivity of the university as well as the student's rank within their class into account.
Maths and stats proficiency
Your first degree must have contained solid degree-level mathematics training, with courses in differential calculus, linear algebra, probability and statistics as a minimum requirement.
Applicants to the course need to be fluent in English and we assess fluency in the following ways:
- if English is your native language.
- or you have an IELTS minimum overall score of 7.5, with not less than 7.0 in each element
- or you have a TOEFL minimum score of either:
- 110 in the internet-based test (iBT), with not less than 25 in each element
- 637 in the paper-based test (pBT) with 5.5 in the Test of Written English (TWE)
Not yet taken IELTS or TOEFL? Test result out-of-date or not up to the required standard? Don't worry, you don't have to include your English language test scores with your initial application documents; they can be forwarded on later in the process. If you are made an offer, one of the conditions of entry will be getting the required standard of IELTS or TOEFL test score.
