Dear applicant,

Greetings from the programme director Prof. Christian Beck:
Welcome to our second newsletter for the MSc in Mathematical Finance programme. I hope you are enjoying the summer.

The start of the new academic year is less than two months away and everybody here at Queen Mary is excited to meet the new students. If you are still in the process of planning your arrival in London, you can find a lot of useful information on securing your offer as well as on immigration, fees, and accommodation in our previous newsletter.

Thanks to everybody who participated in our online open day in July. We hope we could answer your questions satisfactorily. You are always welcome to direct any questions you might have on our programme or life in London in general to a member of our team.

I wish you a nice rest of the summer, a safe trip to London and look forward to meeting you on 17th of September!

The first stage of the enrolment process is pre-enrolment and it is completed by using the QMUL MySIS (the Student Information System) portal. You will receive an email (in August, though this may vary depending on when your place at the College is confirmed) which will include information on enrolment, as well as details of how to access MySIS and an invitation to pre-enrol online, which can be done up to three weeks prior to the start of your programme.

In order to successfully complete your enrolment when you arrive at QMUL, you will need to bring along personal identification, evidence of your academic qualifications and either a receipt of payment of your tuition fees or paperwork relating to how your fees will be paid.
