The London Institute of Banking & Finance sees surge in applications for degree programmes

15 February, 2017Eoghan Hughes

The London Institute of Banking & Finance has reported a significant increase in the number of students looking to study its full-time undergraduate degrees.

Against a general backdrop of falling university applications across the sector, the specialist provider of banking degrees saw a 128 per cent increase over the past six months.

Since gaining taught-degree awarding powers in 2011, the organisation has invested substantially in its undergraduate programme, opening a new campus at Lovat Lane in the heart of the City of London and providing a dedicated careers service, to support this growth.

Hema Tank, Associate Dean Degree Programmes at The London Institute of Banking & Finance, said:

“In an increasingly competitive employment market, students recognise the need to choose a degree which is closely aligned to the careers they want to pursue. As such, smaller, specialist degree providers, such as ourselves, who have strong links to the industries they represent, are meeting the needs of the growing number of students who already have a strong idea of the direction of their professional lives post-degree.”
