What are short courses?
The advanced modules of the MSc in Mathematical Finance are available for the public to attend, as 'short courses'. There are four Mathematical Finance @ Oxford short courses; each exploring a key area in contemporary mathematical finance.
No proof of qualification is required to attend a short course but, to benefit fully, short course students should have background knowledge in mathematical finance, such as that covered in the core modules of the MSc in Mathematical Finance. Students are not assessed, but at the end of the course they are issued with a certificate of attendance.
The programme of short courses is published during the summer each year. Please note however, that the content of the courses is subject to small change.
Benefits to attending a Short Course

What are people saying about our Short Courses?
"I was really impressed by the excellent course contents, superb delivery, and extremely friendly environment. You go away for a week with a little bit of background knowledge, immerse in the course for a week (as a break from the daily routine!), and come back equipped with the skills and expertise to design, develop, and implement cutting edge models /methods. The course contents cover latest and cutting edge topics, but are presented and explained in a very easy to digest format with plenty of hands on practice. The classes are very interactive, so I did not have many unanswered questions. The admin was very efficient (I did not have to contact them once!), and the staff and students were extremely friendly. I ended the week with a trip to the Blenheim palace."
