Where does this Lead

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. You can climb the finance ladder by gaining further AAT qualifications at Level 4.


At over 30 UK universities, AAT qualifications from Level 3 upwards provide exemptions on accounting and finance related degrees. All the UK chartered and certified accountancy bodies recognise the AAT accounting qualification and offer AAT members exemptions.


Tell Me More

Extra Costs

Your tutor will advise you of the cheapest places to buy these at the start of the course. Limited textbooks are available in the college LRC for short term loans.


Students should also be aware that they are responsible for covering the cost of any exam resits (approximately £60).
