The programme offered by AAT covers a range of basic accounting papers, from double-entry bookkeeping, basics of costing, administrative structure and functions of an accounting department etc. It will also expose students to elementary levels of accounting packages and to the basics of computers. It’s ideal if you’re new to working in finance or you’re looking to expand and develop your foundation knowledge and skills.
The levels in Year 2 Semesters 3 & 4 cover higher level accounting tasks, including taxation, auditing, reviewing and commenting on financial performance of companies, drafting financial statements, managing budgets and preparing the accounts of companies and other legal entities. A perfect situation when you want to advance your career and want a qualification to give you the confidence and proof that you have the skills to do the job. Once you’ve achieved this qualification, you’ll be the proud owner of the AAT Accounting Qualification.
