Our courses give you practical, industry-focused knowledge that you can put to use from day one. So whether you're taking your first steps towards becoming an accountant, looking to progress in your accountancy career, or simply want to bring useful financial knowledge to your current role, we're here to help you succeed.

Trust us – we’ve been doing this for over 127 years.

*Our AAT pass rate of 96% has been based on 954 exam sittings and 912 passes by ICS Learn AAT students during 2015.


Why Study Accountancy?

An Accountancy qualification gives you a vast range of lucrative career opportunities: sound financial management is at the heart of any business, so demand for qualified accountants is consistently high.

Accountancy is also a route into senior management positions within large firms: the CEOs of many of the UK's leading companies are qualified accountants.

After graduating, you could set up your own accounting practice, or work in desirable roles such as:

  1. Accounting technician
  2. Senior finance officer
  3. Cost accountant
  4. Payroll manager
  5. Commercial analyst
  6. Senior bookkeeper
  7. Company secretary
  8. Accounts administrator

Your 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.

You'll gain insight into accounting, bookkeeping, business ethics, business accounting, budgeting and a huge amount more. You'll also develop invaluable numerical and quantitative skills, and enhance your problem-solving and analytical ability.

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 hard sell - we're just here to help you make the right choice.

Why Choose AAT?

There are a lot of accountancy courses available, and it can be hard to know which to pick. We think an AAT course is the best choice because you can be sure that your AAT qualification will be recognised, respected and valued by potential employers.

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. If you're looking to become a Chartered Accountant, AAT's fast-track can potentially get you there faster than an university degree.

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.
