Online AAT Bookkeeping Courses

We offer the full range of AAT Bookkeeping courses, with levels suitable for both beginners and those with experience. Not sure which is the right qualification for you? Enquire now to speak to a Course Advisor and find your ideal course.

Which AAT qualification should you choose?

If you’re hoping to start a bookkeeping career or further the one you already have, an AAT full-time or part-time course will undoubtedly steer you in the right direction. Studying an AAT qualification alongside practical real-world experience is the ideal way to land you the bookkeeping job of your dreams. The AAT course you choose to complete will be dependent on your previous experience.

AAT Foundation Certificate in Bookkeeping (Level 2) – Suitable for those with little or no experience, the Level 2 Bookkeeping qualification will teach you the essential skills, such as double-entry processes. Once completed you will be qualified for an entry-level bookkeeping role.

AAT Advanced Certificate in Bookkeeping (Level 3) – In this course, you’ll learn more advanced bookkeeping practices, which will prepare you for a role with greater responsibility. Completing the Level 3 Bookkeeping qualification also makes you eligible to apply for AAT Bookkeeper status and become a freelance bookkeeper.

Our courses are available individually, but we also offer the option to study AAT online in an AAT Bookkeeping Level 2 & 3 course bundle. This means you don’t have to worry about enroling again each time. For a full rundown of the courses and what you can expect in more detail, visit the individual AAT course pages.

What are the AAT course prices?

Our bookkeeping course prices vary, depending on which level you opt for and the payment plan you choose. Call our Course Advisors today to find the course price that suits your budget.

Courses can be paid in full when you enrol or over 12 monthly payments, interest-free.

For more information, please see our full terms and conditions.

What is the duration of an AAT course?

Each course varies in length, depending on your learning style, your other commitments and the amount of content in the course. For example, the Level 3 AAT Bookkeeping course includes tuition and access to the campus for 9 months, but is typically completed in 7 months. Each course offers tuition and guidance for longer than it typically takes to complete all the work. This allows you flexibility and covers for emergencies, holidays or any other issues that may arise during the time of your home studies. If you reach the end of your tuition period and still haven’t been able to complete your qualification, you can purchase a tutor extension package to continue studying.

“AVADO take the “distant” out of distance learning. They provide high levels of support and receive strong student engagement as a result, while they encourage progression through the entire AAT qualification.”

Nicky Fisher, AAT Past President

“This course has that structure and pace that is manageable and most importantly keeps me constantly engaged. I like that you can easily contact the tutor by phone or email and talk to classmates on the student forum giving each other tips and encouraging each other to push through.”

Sarah Eve Tucker, AAT Graduate
