Have you considered a career in Financial Services?


LIA can help you take the first steps


As exam time approaches, and school-leavers consider life after the Leaving Cert, LIA can provide school leavers and graduates with a flexible path to gain the industry qualifications needed to start a career in Financial Services.

LIA offers:

  • Distance-learning courses
  • UCD-accredited Certificates, Diplomas and MSc
  • Level 7 through Level 9 on the National Framework of Qualifications
  • Designations recognised under the Central Bank’s Minimum Competency Code
  • Professional and personal development resources

Course offering

Our professional qualifications are all on the National Framework of Qualifications and are accredited by UCD. As our courses are predominantly distance learning, they can be taken either as an alternative, or in addition to a full-time third level course – and many of them will lead to designations required and recognised by the Central Bank for those working in the retail financial services sector.
