What is distance learning?

Distance learning allows international and UK-based students to study for an LIBF degree flexibly and online. Studying at your own pace allows you to combine your studies with a full-time job or other commitments.

Why study at LIBF?

We have a reputation for excellent teaching that meets practical needs. When you study with us, you'll learn from academics who've enjoyed successful careers – industry leaders who'll share their experiences with you to enrich your learning. And when you join LIBF, you join a global community of professionals and alumni. This network can help support you at any stage of your career. LIBF is a registered higher education provider with the Office for Students.

What is the LIBF’s history?

In 1879, LIBF was founded on the vision of a small group of banking professionals who recognised the importance of professional accreditation for individuals within the industry. Their initiative laid the foundation for 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. We have a global community of students and alumni spanning over 130 countries.

Scholarships and Funding

Every major achievement begins with a small step. Our scholarships and Hardship Fund aim to ease the financial burden and boost your confidence as you pursue your goals. These financial aids are designed to make education more accessible and benefit both UK undergraduate and postgraduate students.

These funds are available twice during the academic year. Current undergraduate students will be notified when the application period is open, and the allocation of funds will be determined by the Scholarship, Bursaries, and Prizes Committee.
