Deadline for 2024 entry
- 31 January 2024
If your written application is successfully shortlisted, you will be invited to an interview. Interview weeks for 2024 entry are to be confirmed.
There are two parts to the interview, which will be completed within the same week:
- An online maths quiz (30 minutes at a set time to ensure fairness to all candidates more details can be found on our FAQs page)
- An online interview with an academic (20-30 minutes)
Quiz performance may be used to inform interview questions, but will not in itself be a criteria in the selection process. The purpose of the interview is for us to to find out more about your motivation, analytical thinking, and communication skills. As such, no particular preparation is needed and we do not expect you to demonstrate prior knowledge of economics, finance and/or data science. Our aim, at the meeting, is to identify prospective students who are most likely to enjoy and succeed on the degree.
