Academic Requirements

You need the following GPA score:

Required score: Lower Second Class
Recommended score: Upper Second Class

Applicants for graduate programs must have the equivalent of a bachelor’s degree with a minimum GPA equivalent to Lower Second Class on the UK Honour scale. Admitted applicants typically have an undergraduate GPA of Upper Second Class or better on the UK Honour scale. No exam grade should be lower than 4.5 (European grade scale) or D (American grade scale).

Your GPA (Grade Point Average) is calculated using the grades that you received in each course, and is determined by the points assigned to each grade (e.g. for the US grading scale from A-F).

  • A good Honours degree (first or second class), or its non-UK equivalent, in a relevant subject from a recognised British or overseas university.
  • Work or project experience in the area of finance will be of further advantage.
  • If your first language is not English, or your first degree was not taught in English, we’ll need to see evidence of your English language ability.
