ICS Real Stories: Katalin | Online AAT Level 3 Review



With the joint responsibilities of a full-time job and a child on her plate, Katalin Pongo found our online AAT Advanced Diploma a convenient way to advance her career. 


I graduated as an Economist in 2009 at Budapest Business School and I was working for Nokia at a service centre in Hungary.

Six years ago, I decided to move to England where I worked hard on my English Language skills. I always wanted to work and live in the UK.

As the accounting and taxation rules differ country by country, I knew that my previous studies wouldn’t be enough.

Last year I started my studies with AAT Level 3. As my life circumstances are complicated (I have a child and full-time job), I knew that the best choice for me would be distance learning.

I discovered ICS Learn who are best suited for my plans, in terms of price and value, so I decided to start my course with them.

I received a very good package, from the beginning everyone was so helpful, I also received the support I needed and didn`t have any concerns or doubts about ICS Learn.

As this is my first course in the UK, I can`t compare but I think I will stay with ICS Learn in the future.  Study with ICS Learn is easy, the books are very clear and I didn`t have any problem understanding the tasks.

When I have had some minor difficulties, my tutor has helped me with a quick and understandable explanation. I never had to ask anything twice.

Their online service has lots of tests and every module has extra material that I find helpful. It does in my opinion give people more knowledge and more confidence for passing the exams. I passed my first 4 exams straight away which certainly boosted my confidence.

I plan to complete Level 3, and gain Bookkeeper status as I’ve only got my synoptic exam left. After finishing Level 3 I would like to start the Level 4 Professional Accounting course.

During this year I have realised my potential, I really enjoy the challenges that distance learning brings opening doors for future career moves.

I would recommend ICS Learn to anyone, they are more than helpful with support only a click away.
