There are three levels to the AAT Accounting Qualification. You will spend about a year on each level, so if you start at Level 2, it will take you three years to become fully qualified. If you have previous experience, you could have certain exemptions, and qualify in two years or less.
You should spend three hours a week studying outside of class, for each learning and assessment area. Your study time will need to increase before assessments when you’re revising. Don’t forget to use all the study and membership support that is also offered by AAT as well as from the course tutors.
You will have to have a thirst for learning and be prepared to work outside your guided lessons. As part of the course you are expected to keep yourself up to date with the latest development in the subject area.
Whole class and group work activities will take place but the majority of your learning will be ‘standalone’.
Final assessment is by examination only. There is no course work to complete but you will be assessed in class periodically to establish understanding and learning.
