Ideal for those wishing to be leaders in their industry. The course balances theory and practice to induce an effective way of learning. I would highly recommend for professionals looking to boost their careers.
This course benefits from the best of both worlds: technical, CAD and applied lasses with buIlt environment student in Edinburgh, and concept/context/studio design with the creative textiles and fashion students in Galashiels. This is a relatively new course and growing all the time, it's a great chance to leave your mark on the university. Because there's direct entry to 3rd year there are a variety of students and you learn a lot from the other students in your class and their earlier experience/college courses. The third year course is a series of controlled design projects of various scales/sites, the fourth year is a thesis design project set by you yourself, so you can specialise and concentrate on something that specifically interests you- which is great. The tutors have a lot of time for you, you can contact them by email, and there's time each week for 1-to-1- sessions as well as class seminars and lectures.
The reason why I chose this course lies in reputation of the School as a provider of world-class education, with reputable professors and high standarts of teaching. The program content forges close links to current industry, by instance, inviting real-life CEOs and industry experts to teaching process. I highly recommend this course to anybody who intends to boost the career and seeks for development opportunities.
When I decided to change my career, I considered different options and finally chose Lean Six Sigma, a completely unknown area for me those days. I am happy today for that choice, because School and lecturers deliver an excellent course, bringing their vast personal experience and knowledge in addition to theoretical material. Truly world-class quality of teaching the high-demand continuous improvement culture of modern reality.
The course has developed reputation of being quite difficult over the last few years as results (pass rates) have been consistently as low as 40 to 50 %. Selection of subjects for the course is quite good but some of the main courses such as Financial Markets, Financial Econometrics and Derivative Market and Pricing are not taught very well. The main element of the Derivative Markets and Pricing course is pricing part (for employment purpose) that includes Ito calculus and Black Scholes model of option pricing and this part has not been taught particularly well according to the past years students. Credit risk modelling part does not include any logistic regression type of techniques widely used in retail credit risk modelling and lacks application part required to find entry level jobs. Overall from talking to many students from past few years (MSc Financial Maths and others) who shared some of the courses with MSc ? QFRM, this course does not seem to help in finding employment as much as it claims in its advertisement.
