After Your Course

There are wide and varied career opportunities for AAT students including accountant, finance manager and bookkeeper. Accounting is also a useful skill for someone in a general business management role. Some students go on to set up their own business as a bookkeeper or undertake the accounting for a family business.

Successful completion of the AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting (Level 4) can lead to progression to chartered status.

Fees

£2499.00

Course fees are per year. There may also be additional costs associated with the course (please see the course overview).

Student Finance
Whether you qualify for student finance depends on specific criteria. The main student finance package for full-time students includes a tuition fee loan and maintenance loan for living costs. Part-time students can access a tuition fee loan to pay for your course.

Generally, you will only get student finance if you’re doing your first degree-level qualification. This is true even if your previous course was self-funded.
