There are currently over 60 online courses on offer. A full range of courses offered by London School of Finance and Law can be viewed via our Course Finder. You can also study for free on our Open Learning platform.

All our courses are recognised as verified CPD that can be supported by evidence, such as course notes, produced course work, tutor-marked end-of-course assessment and a certificate of completion. Each course content ensures that students engage in meaningful, tutor-curated experiential/workplace learning, professional skills development, reading and research. Individual records from the learning journal can also be transferred to a self-evaluation sheet as third party evidence for informal CPD. Moreover, our students can print out a letter of good standing as proof of their studies with LSFL should their professional bodies require additional evidence.

You may find our courses particularly relevant if you are studying for qualifying exams in accounting, investment management, risk management, financial planning and tax law. LSFL students often study finance and accounting in colleges and universities or pursue qualifications with professional accounting and tax bodies, such as the Association of Association of Chartered Certified Accountants (ACCA), Chartered Institute of Management Accountants (CIMA), Chartered Institute of Public Finance and Accountancy (CIPFA), Chartered Institute of Taxation (CIOT), and so on. Some students have just started to study bookkeeping and accounting to move into employment for the first time or to change to a new career area.

Our courses are also useful for tax, accounting and finance professionals planning to move to an English-speaking country (especially the UK) for work or further studies in their professional fields as they enable to get familiarised with the nuances of local accounting and tax rules, regulations and terminology in advance. We run English for Finance, English for Financial Journalists, Legal English and Business English courses as well as an IELTS preparation course for those who aim to pass the exam to study at a UK university.

A number of our courses can be of interest for business administrators managing professional service firms as they provide guidance on the latest trends in financial management, operations management, marketing, human resource management, leadership and entrepreneurship in the financial sector.

If you teach tax law, accounting and finance in further education establishments, you can read LSFL Magazine available only to LSFL students. Published biannually, the magazine contains a wealth of information, articles and methodological materials that can be directly used by lecturers delivering academic, vocational, technical and professional courses in business management, finance, tax law and professional English.
