All those looking to enrol on the Level 4 course must have completed the AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting (Level 3), or hold a recent British or Irish degree in Accounting or Finance.

Exceptions can occasionally be made for those that have other equivalent Level 3 qualifications, as long as they are currently employed in an accounting role. If you are unsure which level is right for you, the AAT offer a Skillcheck test.

The following entry requirements also 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 an AAT Approved centre. Students outside the UK will incur an additional cost for international postage of textbooks
