  3. Cost accountant
  4. Payroll manager
  5. Commercial analyst
  6. Senior bookkeeper

Your accountancy course can also pave the way to becoming a Chartered Accountant. All the chartered and certified accountancy bodies in the UK recognise AAT Accounting qualifications, so if you go on to further study, you can receive exemptions from certain modules and achieve chartered status more quickly than by following the university path.​​

Our Accountancy Courses

Accountancy is the language of business. By taking an AAT-approved course with us, you'll learn how businesses become successful and gain key insight into global business issues and international finance.

If you’re unsure about which course is right for you, AAT’s Skill Check can help you test your current accountancy skill in order to identify which skill could be enhanced and which level you should start at. 

Everyone has a different combination of skills, experience, education and ambition, so the best way to decide on the right course for you is to give our specialist AAT course advisors a call. Don't worry, there won't be any pressure - we're just here to help you make the right choice.

Why Choose AAT?

AAT are the largest professional body for vocational accountants in the UK, with over 133,000 members worldwide. They're internationally recognised for their exceptionally high standards, and they set the bar for quality within the industry.

Happy Students

Don’t just take it from us – here’s what our students say


Online learning with ICS Learn works well for me as I am a fast learner, and I am working towards my own tight time schedule which allows me to achieve my goals without being held back by cohorts or set weekly study goals dictated by the pace of other students. Completing an AAT distance learning course seemed ideal as it would prove to employers that I have focus, commitment and that I am goal-driven. The success after passing an exam is incredibly rewarding.

I chose to study AAT with ICS Learn because my friends who are also accountants recommended that this was the best route. I couldn't agree more with them myself. ICS Learn is great because it allows you to balance your work and studying time, and you can go at your own pace. I’m constantly scanning over my books whenever I get a chance. My tutor is on hand for me to ask any questions, which is always handy, and it was very easy to sign up and enrol!

I wanted to go far in Accounting and knew that to be successful you need a strong foundation. So I decided to go for an AAT qualification. With a full-time job and a six-month-old baby, I needed something which could work around my busy schedule, so I chose ICS Learn. Their price was highly competitive and online learning meant I could study whenever I had time, even taking mock exams on my smart phone. I am now studying to be a chartered accountant.
