As this is a foundation level course there are no formal academic or work experience requirements. A basic qualification in mathematics or keen interest in accounting is desirable, plus an intention to progress your career. If you are unsure which level is right for you, the AAT offer a Skillcheck test.

The following prerequisites apply:

  • You must be over the age of 18 or have a third-party payee for any financial agreement
  • You must have a solid grasp of the English language (IELTS 5.5 or equivalent if English is not your first language)
  • You must have access to a computer or other internet enabled device and a reliable Internet connection, plus basic computer skills
  • You must be able to attend all exams at a UK based AAT Approved centre. Students outside the UK will incur an additional cost for international postage of textbooks.
