Frequently Asked Questions

In order to be eligible for the MSc programme, applicants normally hold an undergraduate honours degree (2:1 classification) in a relevant subject, or have completed the Chartered Associateship (‘qualification’ route) with us.

If you are unsure about your eligibility for the course, please get in contact with us to discuss your application in further detail: masters@libf.ac.uk.

Usually applicants have some professional experience in the financial services sector. However, in some cases where applicants have recently completed their undergraduate degree, or where applicants wish to change career direction, we will consider other factors, including the strength of their personal statement (an integral part of the application form). We may also invite applicants for an interview in person, or via telephone/Skype.

If you have any concerns or questions about your eligibility for the programme, please get in touch with the Postgraduate team: masters@libf.ac.uk.
 

We offer three types of scholarships.  The Global Masters Scholarship (£2,000) is available to self-funded overseas students; the UK Masters Scholarship (£2,000) is available to self-funded UK students; the Alumni Scholarship (£1,500) is available to all graduates of The London Institute of Banking & Finance, irrespective of when you completed your degree with us.

Unfortunately not.  Only one scholarship per recipient is available.  Should you apply for, and be awarded, the UK Masters Scholarship, you would forfeit the Alumni Scholarship.

No.  We are happy to discuss and agree a payment plan with each applicant on a case-by-case basis and many of our students pay their fee via instalments.  However, we do normally ask to receive a partial payment towards the course fee before the beginning of the programme.

We are happy to consider potential exemptions against modules within the Masters programme.  In order to take such discussions further, we would normally ask, as an initial step, for you to provide us with details of previous module(s) studied, usually in the form of a syllabus or module specification.

No.  Examinations are normally held in the country where the student resides.

The Masters is delivered entirely online and can be studied, via the internet, from anywhere in the world.
