The AAT (Association of Accounting Technician) is an internationally recognised qualification, which qualifies many people around the world to be accounting technicians. The organisation is sponsored by CIPFA, ICAEW, CIMA and ICAS; and is head-quartered in London, UK. The qualification is based on practical, real-world accounting knowledge which can be put to use even as it is being acquired. Achieving the AAT qualification will increase employability, confidence and career prospects – it gives long-lasting business and finance skills.
Once you embark on the AAT qualification, you have three exit points. These are AAT Level 2 Certificate, AAT Level 3 Diploma, and AAT Level 4 Diploma. Obtaining the AAT Level 4 Diploma, holders can proceed to one of the following qualifications:
- BA Honours International Accounting
You do not need prior formal qualifications to begin studying for the AAT. It is, however, important that you have sufficient English language and numerical ability to be able to pass the assessments. AAT therefore only asks that you are numerate, and that you can complete exams and written projects in English. BIBF will therefore need to assess the numeracy and English language skills of applicants. If you have relevant school qualifications, or a degree, or some accounting experience, you may be able to start at a level higher than 2.
|AAT level 2: Certificate in Accounting
|AAT level 3: Diploma in Accounting
|AAT level 4: Diploma in Accounting
The AAT Accounting Qualification gives you practical, internationally recognised finance and accountancy skills that can open doors for you in any industry across the world.
You don't need previous qualifications to study AAT, and you can work at a pace that fits in with your lifestyle. Whether you're looking for your first job in accountancy, or simply want to enhance your existing accounting skills, AAT will give you the training you need.
AAT offers a range of benefits for student members (including study support, help finding a job and exclusive discounts), as well as a route into chartered accountancy. If you choose to further your studies with one of the leading chartered professional bodies, such as ACCA, CIPFA or CIMA, your AAT qualification will give you generous exemptions
