You will require an AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting (Level 3). However, other relevant qualifications/experience will be considered on a case by case basis and discussed at interview.

Throughout the duration of this course you will cover the following six modules:

  • Financial Statements for Limited Companies
  • Management Accounting: Budgeting
  • Management Accounting: Decisions and Control
  • Accounting Systems and Controls
  • Personal Tax
  • Business Tax

Accounting principles on this course will be taught in a classroom environment. Using simulations, e-learning and other teaching materials. Each module will be taught simultaneously alongside another module. 

You will be assessed by computer based assessment after each module (excluding Accounting Systems and Controls) – results are published by AAT 6 weeks later. This qualification also includes a synoptic assessment drawing on and testing understanding of connections between the four mandatory topics covered across the qualification.

You will need to purchase books at an approximate cost of £120. If you are not already registered you will need to obtain AAT membership, further information can be found at www.aat.org.uk/membership

You can progress onto the professional Accounting bodies such as ACCA or CIMA.


My time at the college was definitely life changing, I have learnt a lot of new skills, and obviously it’s a completely new experience. The support was great, there was always people there to help and try make it as easy as they can for you. The college is really fantastic, it has helped me on the way to get to what I want to achieve within my career goals.

College has been the best two years of my education. All my teachers were great and amazing, and I think they were the most helpful they could have been.

Megan Capaldi-Tallon, A Level student

I’m very, very happy, I didn’t expect to do so well. The College has been helpful and supportive. I loved my courses, and the teachers were really good – every single one of them. The facilities are great, but it’s the staff that really make this place.
