As reported by the U.S. Bureau of Labour Statistics, employment of financial analysts is forecasted to grow by 12% from 2014 to 2024. This is faster than the average for many occupations. The London Academy of Trading (LAT) will help you to confidently market yourself to employers during the resettlement process.

LAT’s programmes are a perfect blend of theoretical and practical learning, offering academic teaching provided by experienced traders as well as extensive trading experience. You will be able to attend practical sessions on our trading floor in London, which will enable you to apply your knowledge to real-life markets.

In addition, students at LAT benefit from flexible study modes — you can stud online, on campus or through a combination of both online and face-to-face teaching. We offer courses with durations ranging from two days to two years, so you will be able to choose a programme that best suits your circumstances.

Our courses do not require any prior knowledge in trading or financial markets, as they start with a beginners’ guide to build up your expertise and provide a hands-on experience of the world of trading and financial markets. Ultimately, you will learn how to apply your experience and theoretical knowledge gained from the course to real-time markets. LAT’s courses are taught by lecturers with extensive experience in financial markets and trading, and studying our programmes will give you access to LAT’s trading community, ongoing support and career advice.
