What students think about London Institute of Banking and Finance

    Saajid Patel, Corporate Analyst at HSBC

    I decided to study here as I felt that they had excellent links within the financial services industry and had courses that were tailor made for those interested in getting into a career in financial services. 

    I enjoyed the interactive learning as the class sizes were smaller, therefore it was a lot easier to communicate with the lecturers (who all have a wealth of relevant experience and knowledge within the industry) and ask any questions. I also enjoyed the events and I was involved in the committee responsible for organising these events for a while. 

    I believe that the knowledge gained and the links that they have within the financial services industry helped me to get my first internship with Barclays. This is turn helped me get my current role with HSBC. It is also interesting knowing that most graduate programs (HSBC for one) send their graduate trainees to The London Institute of Banking & Finance to build up their base knowledge in the financial industry. This meant that I came out a step ahead in terms of my base knowledge, allowing me to kick start my banking career and hit the ground running.

    Millie Montague, Securities Analyst at Goldman Sachs

    Different to many, I transferred from Mathematics and Finance at City University to study at The London Institute of Banking & Finance, and I am very pleased with my decision. It provided me with all the support I needed during the application season; I attended multiple CV and cover letter workshops with industry professionals, and was encouraged to gain work experience by being offered the Advanced Work Based Learning module.

    I began reading the Financial Times, to which the university provide a subscription, and I even started trading myself. This is down to the influence of the students I am surrounded with here – the difference in ambition and industry knowledge is striking.

    I have found networking a powerful tool, and having somebody to mention in your cover letter, as well as gain advice from when applying, is so beneficial. The events that they run are a great way to meet people working in the industry, and networking is heavily encouraged. Overall, my degree has been a leap for me and helped me in obtaining my first choice position.
