Why study at LIBF?
LIBF has a reputation for excellent teaching that meet practical needs.

What is the LIBF’s history?
Back in 1879, there were no qualifications for bank workers and very few opportunities to progress. United by the need for professional recognition for their skills and experience, a small group of banking professionals set up the first Institute of Bankers in England and Wales which later became LIBF.
Today, LIBF provides students all over the world with everything they need to learn flexibly online, anywhere, and is the only professional body in the world with taught degree awarding powers. They have a global community of students and alumni spanning over 120 countries.
