My journey into finance as an international student
Despite being an international graduate with previous financial experience in ME, considering my education from the Middle East, I had limited knowledge of international derivatives or the capital market. I am in my thirties and the idea that I must study a new degree to gain this knowledge with high tuition fees and a stressful visa application was off-putting.

Therefore, I started searching for a training course, or an academy, that could provide me with the skills and knowledge I needed to succeed in the international finance industry. However, it was a risk. Paying for a course that may not cover the area that I want and may not be accreditable is a gamble for anyone.

After researching several academies, I found the introduction videos from the London Banking Academy. I was impressed by the professionalism and expertise of the academy staff, leading to me enrolling at LBA.
From research, a course needs to be informative and challenging. I needed a course that offered flexibility so I can study at my own pace and schedule. I was also on the lookout for a banking course that could improve my English skills as learning through an interactive platform with expert-led video sessions and eLearning content offers a contrast of materials.

It’s important to find a course with highly experienced instructors, as this leads to greater learning about the finance industry. For individuals looking for a career in finance and banking this type of course could lead to greater insight to set your career goals within the financial sector.
