The AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting is the only AAT qualification at Professional level. 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.

The Professional Diploma is designed for students who have completed the AAT Advanced 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.
