AAT student reviews

Anurag Rai Aat Level

‘I knew that to be successful you need a strong foundation, so I decided to go for AAT. Online learning meant I could study whenever I had time. The study material and support from tutors helped me achieve two AAT Levels in 4 months while working full time.’
- Anurag Rai

Lauren Pacheco Aat

‘ICS Learn has been fantastic. The website is easy to use and my tutors have been very helpful and answer my questions in depth. They always come back to me in a good amount of time - I can rely on them to get a response quickly!’
- Lauren Pacheco

Elina Bernane Aat Foundation And Advanced In Accounting

‘AAT has given me focus after years of not knowing where my career is going. It led to being employed in a medium-level finance role with no previous experience, and I have earned back the money I spent in less than a year.’
- Elina Bernane

Accountancy FAQs

Yes! We’re an award-winning AAT centre, and we’ve been pioneers in flexible learning for 130 years.

We’re trusted by thousands of students in 90+ countries, with a Trustpilot rating of 4.8/5 from more than 4000 independent reviews.

If you’re not sure which level to choose, we recommend the AAT Skillcheck. It’s a 30-minute multiple choice test that will suggest the right level for you based on your accounting knowledge.

The Foundation Certificate is perfect if you have no accounting experience or if you haven’t mastered essential skills like double-entry bookkeeping. Most students start at Foundation level, even if they have some accounting experience.

The Advanced Diploma is for you if you have significant practical accounting experience and a firm grasp of all the topics covered at Foundation level.

The Professional Diploma could be ideal if you understand everything covered at Foundation and Advanced level and are fully competent in double-entry bookkeeping. Students rarely enrol directly onto the Professional Diploma without completing Foundation/Advanced or a similar practical accounting qualification first.

If you plan on completing multiple levels, you can save money and transition smoothly by studying our Foundation & Advanced or Advanced & Professional combined courses.

Our AAT course guides include a detailed breakdown of the topics covered on each course.

AAT graduates are in high demand by employers for their practical, hands-on accounting skills.
