A day in the life of a Financial Mathematics MSc student

By Vansikha, MSc Financial Mathematics

Welcome to my day as a Financial Mathematics MSc student.

The day isn’t too cramped; on an average I have one lecture and one tutorial a day but this can vary. With each module, I get an assignment which I’m expected to try at home, and then I discuss my ideas with my peers during tutorials. After lectures, I go through my course material, and spend a good amount of the day doing readings. It’s great to see my personal tutor too, in case things seem to go haywire, or if I need a second opinion about anything concerning academia or otherwise.

King’s is a great platform to learn about “Bloomberg” and other trading or coding tools too. I like to dedicate some time during the day to have a go at trading or coding. King’s organises career fairs, so I always go along to learn about companies, network and apply for internships/ jobs.

All in all, my days are long but always interesting. There’s so much to learn, and I can’t wait to put my MSc knowledge into practice in my future career.
