About this diploma

Diploma Outline

Enhancing your AAT qualifications to hold the Diploma in Accounting (Level 3*) will demonstrate to potential employers that you take your career path and progression aims seriously. Holding a qualification like this can lead to a rewarding career as an Accountant, Bookkeeper, Finance Administrator, or Treasurer; or it can help you confidently handle the finances of your own business.

This diploma will help you get where you want to be and open up the door to more senior-level positions.

From here, there are further training and career progression options which can lead to more seniorlevel accounting positions, such as Management Accountant and Business Tax Specialist.

This training programme offers a great opportunity to gain an AAT Diploma in Accounting qualification.

If you already have some accounting and bookkeeping knowledge, for example, you’ve already obtained the AAT Certificate in Accounting, this diploma will build on your existing knowledge and take it to the next level.

Throughout your studies, you’ll have access to MyAAT. This is a vast online resource where all students studying AAT qualifications can access study support, additional resources, and exclusive AAT member benefits. We recommend you maximise your access to the resource as it can help greatly as part of your preparation to undertake the AAT qualification examinations.

* Level 3 is the equivalent of Level 5 in Ireland and Level 6 in Scotland.
