Who we are
The London Academy of Trading (LAT) is the only dual-accredited provider of financial trading education in the UK. In September 2017 we were awarded BAC* accreditation which means international students can now study at LAT in the City of London on a Student Visitor Visa (SVV).
Our courses are designed for individuals looking to develop their understanding of the financial markets trading with a view to career development or to supplement their income through trading.We enable students to develop robust and structured trading strategies by combining theoretical knowledge with practical trading skills. All students have direct access to our mentors and traders for advice and guidance for ten hours every day (0700 – 1700 London time, Monday to Friday).
You can study around your other commitments, on our London trading floor or 100% online, although most students choose a Blended option of online study with some days on the trading floor.
Our courses range from a two-day introduction to our accredited 12 week Level 5 Diploma in Applied Financial Trading.
Our teaching faculty is comprised of experienced traders and analysts from major financial institutions including HSBC, Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse and Bloomberg.
Working in partnership with a number of financial companies enables us to provide cutting-edge technology and up-to-the-minute news and data to support the learning process.
