AAT FAPS Financial Accounting - Preparing Financial Statements (Blended Learning) - Level 3


We are excited to introduce our revamped AAT courses, which now include the option to study each unit individually.

This may be suitable if you have transferred from AQ2016 to AQ2022 and only have a couple of units left after the transition, or if you don’t want to be restricted to an academic year for completion of the qualification.

An AAT qualification offers you a professional status that reflects the skills you’ve worked so hard to gain.
