University or college

You've graduated from university or college

Studying with the Financial Adviser School is a great first step into a career that has fantastic prospects. We can help you to find an employer to sponsor your training, so it needn’t mean taking on lots of debt in return for your qualifications, and you don’t need a degree to get started.

  • We work with advice businesses that are looking to hire university and college leavers. Typically you’ll undertake your financial adviser exams whilst working for the business in a support or administration role. Once you’ve completed your 58-week training programme and achieved your qualifications, you’ll be in a position to be promoted into a financial adviser role.
  • Our targeted training programme aims at giving you a specific career path and qualifications that will allow you to be up and running as a financial adviser in your second year of joining the industry, or even earlier as a mortgage adviser.
  • Becoming a financial adviser is achievable and accessible. You don’t need to have studied anything to do with finance or accountancy before. Our training starts from scratch, giving you the confidence and knowledge you need to break into a desirable career.

What is a financial adviser and why become one?

Working as a financial adviser may suit you if you’re a people person and you like the idea of a varied, well-paid career where you help people. You can read about some of the benefits of becoming an adviser here.

Financial advisers help their clients (either individuals or businesses) to choose the best financial products and services to meet their needs, helping them achieve their long term goals and ambitions. This might involve advising clients on the right investments, savings, pensions, mortgages or insurance products.
