Is an AAT Level 4 qualification right for me?

The AAT Level 4 Diploma in Professional Accounting is the only AAT qualification at Level 4. It's essential for anyone wishing to become a financial team leader or set up their own accounting practice.

Upon completion of this prestigious qualification, you'll automatically become an AAT Affiliate member, and you'll have the opportunity to become a professional member of AAT (MAAT) once you've gained the requisite work experience. This will allow you to use the designatory letters MAAT after your name on your CV, emails, and business cards, demonstrating your high professional standards to employers and business partners.

You'll also be able to enter one of the many Chartered Accountant fast-track programmes which are available to AAT graduates. 

Is the AAT Professional Diploma right for me?

Courses from the Association of Accounting Technicians (AAT) are available at three levels:

The Professional Diploma is designed for students who have completed the AAT Level 3 Diploma in Accounting; very few students begin their AAT studies at Professional level.

If you're unsure which level is best for you, take the AAT Skillcheck, a 30-minute multiple choice test that will gauge your accounting knowledge and tell you which level will suit you best.

If the Professional Diploma's not right for you, view our full range of AAT Accounting and Bookkeeping courses.

We're committed to making things as easy and convenient for you as possible, so you can enrol any day you like and get started on your studies straight away. Simple!

We want to make studying as accessible as possible, so we offer all our students the option to pay the course fees in monthly, interest-free* instalments. On the day you enrol, all you have to pay is a small deposit towards the overall course price.

We're also able to invoice businesses, so if you're lucky enough to have your course fees paid by your employer, simply speak to our course advisors and they'll be able to talk you through the invoice process.

Once you've chosen your course, get in touch with our expert AAT advisors by phone, email or online chat to ask any questions you have. They'll be more than happy to talk you through everything you need to know.

Once you're ready, you'll enrol over the phone with your course advisor and set up your interest-free payment plan.
