Employment opportunities

Graduates of this programme can take active part in planning and development in financial institutions and financial departments of large companies or engage in scientific research at economic research institutions.

Admission requirements

Admission to the study programme is open to either: a) Graduates of the Academic study programme in Financial mathematics.

b) Graduates of another University undergraduate study programmes, provided that before enrolling, they pass additional exams. The additional exams (between 10 and 60 credits) are assigned by the department study committee.

c) Graduates of a professional undergraduate study programmes, provided that before enrolling, they pass additional exams. The additional exams (between 10 and 60 credits) are assigned by the department study committee.

d) Graduates of equivalent programmes from other universities.

Criteria for recognising knowledge and skills obtained prior to enrolment in the programme

Students may apply for validation of competences acquired previously by means of various forms of education if their competences match those of one or more courses offered within this study programme.

In a formal written request submitted to the Department of Mathematics, the applicant must specify the course(s) whose competences he or she had already mastered, and attach official transcripts proving it. When considering the possible validation of competences corresponding to a particular course, the department study committee bases its decision on a comparison of the duration of the educational process and the scope of the acquired competences with the respective components of the course(s) to which the request pertains.

If the study committee decides to validate the previously acquired competences, the student is awarded all ECTS credits that correspond to the respective course(s).

Conditions for advancement under the programme

Enrolment in Year 1 is granted upon admission. For enrolment in the second study year it is necessary to earn 50 ECTS credits from courses and exams in the current first study year.

For re-enrolment in the first study year, a student needs to earn at least half of all possible credits (30 ECTS credits). Re-enrolment is only possible once. A change of the study programme counts as re-enrolment.

Conditions for transferring between programmes

It is possible to transfer from other study programmes. The appropriate year of study as well as other transfer requirements are determined on the basis of the programme the student is transferring from. The exact conditions for finishing the programme are determined by the department study committee.

Conditions for completing studies

To graduate students need to complete all exams and submit and defend a thesis.
