Hi Everyone,

- University of Leicester : MSc in Financial Mathematics and Computation
- Newcastle University : MSc in Quantitative Finance and Risk Management
- Queen Mary University of London : MSc Mathematical Finance
- University of Sussex : MSc in Financial Mathematics
- University of Strathclyde : MSc in Quantitative Finance
- University of Exeter : MSc Financial Mathematics and MSc Computational Finance
- The University of Leeds : MSc Financial Mathematics
- University of Essex : MSc Financial Engineering and Risk - Management and MSc Computational Finance
- Birkbeck College : MSc in Financial Engineering.

I'm still waiting for university of Lancaster's Quantitative Finance MSc response.

Please help me in choosing the better one from the above and why is it good and how are the job prospects.

Thank you very much in advance.

Based on that my best choice would be the University of Strathclyde.

It's the best on your list. Of course there are other schools higher up in the ranking.

You have applied to too many schools with no real difference in quality.

Look at Edinburgh programme.

I dont know much about these programs but Newcastle and Leeds are very strong in Maths and Computer Science and Finance and that is probably a good sign.

Lancaster is more geared towards general management

If you want to take a couple of gears up look at Oxford or Warwick UCL or Imperial.

I love the Oxford programme having done a couple of modules there. The teaching is superb and you can do it in part-time mode

Their fees are unfortunately too expensive for me!

Add the "Value" attribute to the FT ranking, and compare that with international mobility. Many of the better schools outside the UK are also better value.
