Ideal degrees for Quantitative Finance in Australia


New Member
Hey guys, look idk if i’m allowed to explicitly say my age but i’m a high school student in the younger range of years, in Australia, aspiring to become a quant.

I’ve figured this due to my strengths and interests in finance, stats, maths and coding.

Unfortunately here in Australia there are no Financial Engineering courses, so i’m leaning towards a bachelors in data science, statistics or computer science.

I just have a few questions;

Are these degrees optimal for becoming a quant?

Any advice for a high schooler?

Is it worthwhile getting a Masters, and attempting to get a job in the US?

Brutal honestly would be greatly appreciate, as well as any other advice you could give. thanks heaps.
