Changing your career

Can my background help me to become an adviser?

Whether you’ve worked in the finance profession for years, have recently completed your studies or have enjoyed a career in a different field, you’re likely to have a lot of the skills needed to become a successful financial adviser.

Anyone is welcome to apply for our programmes, there’s no need for prior financial services experience or qualifications, although you would ideally have Maths and English GCSE’s (or equivalent) at grade C or above.

You can continue with your current employment outside the financial services industry whilst you study. Many students who work outside of the financial services industry do so until they gain their CeMAP® qualification, and then become a trainee mortgage and protection adviser whilst they complete the remainder of their programme. We can help you to find suitable employment should you wish to do this.

Our programmes

We have four programmes to choose from, depending on the type of financial advice you want to provide.
