AAT Accounting Courses
AAT Accounting is for students who already know their aim toward an accounting career. Bookkeeping is part of accounting qualifications as well.
Our accounting qualifications are highly valued by employers. Many students start at foundation level to qualify for entry-level accounting roles, but you can start at our advanced level if you have relevant skills and experience. These qualifications also give you the opportunity to progress to chartered study or become an AAT Licensed Accountant.
Jobs in accounting are extremely diverse and deliver exciting career opportunities, and studying an AAT accounting qualification will ensure you have the skills and experience that employers need. Some of our accounting qualifications offer a route into becoming an AAT professional member, and are a stepping stone toward university, chartered accountancy or being your own boss.
Students can start with any qualification depending on their existing skills and experience. If they already have some accounting experience, they should use AAT Skillcheck to find out which qualification is right for them.
Our highly established, industry recognised accounting qualifications cover three different levels of skills and knowledge: foundation, advanced and professional. Typical job roles and salary expectations vary according to the level of qualification.
