London Academy of Trading


Established in 2010, the London Academy of Trading (LAT) has provided training for thousands of individuals who want a flexible way to enhance their knowledge of financial markets and boost their skills in trading. Our accreditation by the British Accreditation Council (BAC) allows international students to study with us in London on Short-Term Study Visas (STSV). As a result, in the past year alone, we have been able to invest in the trading journeys of students from over 60 countries.

We teach students from all walks of life, from university students to company owners, entrepreneurs, and even retired individuals. While some of our students are familiar with the trading world, we also guide those at the beginning of their journey and want to develop the best practical skills to start investing their money.

We provide a range of courses, from 1-day events to our flagship 12-week Level 5 Diploma in Applied Financial Trading, accredited by ABE and regulated by Ofqual. Our suite of short courses is CPD-certified, enabling students to generate valuable CPD credits.

We know people lead busy lives with life commitments and time constraints, which is why we prioritise flexibility here at LAT. Whether you want to learn directly on our London trading floor, blend online learning with face-to-face classes, or even pause your studies and resume when you can, we give you the space to learn in a way that’s ideal for you.

About Us:

The London Academy of Trading is an award-winning, dual-accredited provider of financial trading education and was the first academy in the UK to offer accredited and regulated qualifications in trading. We pride ourselves on providing practical and vocational training courses developed to help individuals invest or trade in financial markets or for those looking to enhance their employment opportunities within financial markets.

Since 2010, we have stayed committed to our four pillars of knowledge—fundamental analysis, technical analysis, trading psychology, and risk management—which keep us on track to show our students how to make the most out of their trading journey. We help our learners apply their knowledge in a real-world, real-time environment so they understand the fundamental and practical aspects of trading.

Flexible Study Options:

To keep our programmes flexible and accessible, we have developed online delivery methods for an uninterrupted flow of learning for all our students. This means you can extract maximum benefits from whichever course you choose, pause and restart your course at any time, and upgrade from one course to another just by paying the difference in course fees.

Our Expert Tutors:

Our teaching faculty is comprised of experienced traders and analysts from major financial institutions, including HSBC, Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, and Bloomberg, who are eager to support our students through this exciting path they’ve chosen to take. All students have direct access to our team of trading mentors for ten hours every day, where they have the chance to develop robust and structured trading strategies on a 1:1 basis. We also host three daily webinars where our experts analyse the markets, answer questions, and stimulate discussions to enhance the learning process.
