Future Opportunities

AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) qualifications open up huge opportunities nationally and internationally. The qualifications are recognised throughout the finance world; from small local enterprises to the biggest multinationals, there is a demand for qualified accounting staff. The course offers progression onto AAT full membership, giving students professional recognition, allowing them to use the letters MAAT after their name.


All the UK chartered and certified accountancy bodies recognise the AAT accounting qualification and offer AAT members exemptions. Alternatively AAT Level 4 may gain exemptions on accounting finance related degrees at many UK universities.
