When can I apply for the 2021/22 programme?
Applications for 2021 entry will open on 1 September 2020. You are required to apply via the Applicant Portal. Guidance is available from the Postgraduate Admissions website.
What’s the deadline for applications?
The closing date for applications is 25 February 2021. However, candidates are strongly advised to send in their applications well before this date and ideally before the University’s December funding deadline.
What are the requirements for entry into the programme?
View our minimum requirements for entry to the MPhil in Finance. The MPhil is a full-time, nine-month programme and requires the completion of any current training or education programme or release from your current institution for the duration of your study.
Is there an application fee?
There is an application charge of £70. Visit the Postgraduate Admissions’ Application Fee webpage to learn more and to find out which nationals are entitled to a fee waiver.
Do you require work experience?
We do not require work experience; the MPhil in Finance is a pre-experience programme designed for those with no more than one year of work experience after their first degree. For finance professionals with a minimum of two years’ work experience who wish to develop their career in finance, we offer a post-experience Master of Finance.
Do you require a GRE/GMAT score as part of the application process?
We do not accept GMAT. Applicants are encouraged to take the GRE. Although this is not a formal requirement, for applicants from universities which may not be well known to members of the Admissions Committee, a strong GRE test result may well make a difference. When a GRE score is submitted, a minimum score of 780 in the quantitative section is expected. For new GRE scores, the Committee would expect to see the same high percentile, i.e. not below the 80th percentile in all categories.
Applicants who wish to submit a GRE test score should upload an electronic copy of their test report via the Applicant Portal.
