L4 AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting Level 4 | Professional Diploma in Accounting - Level 4

Information Enrol



The AAT is the UK’s leading qualification and membership body for accounting and finance staff, with over 125,000 members in more than 90 countries worldwide. AAT qualifications provide Accounting Technician status. Accounting Technicians work at all levels of finance, from accounts clerks to finance directors. The Level 4 Diploma is aimed at candidates who have successfully completed the AAT Level 3 Diploma in Accounting, but direct entrance without the Level 3 may be suitable for some students with higher study or greater career experience. During the course candidates will cover a number of topics including financial statements, management accounting (budgeting, decisions and control), internal control and accounting systems, cash and treasury management and audit, credit management and personal tax.

What do I need to join?

Candidates will need to have successfully achieved the AAT Level 3 Diploma in Accounting prior to enrolling, have relevant experience and also require a level 2 in Maths & English (A to C Grade GCSE or equivalent). All candidates also have to complete an assessment or interview prior to joining a Level 4 AAT course. Please visit one of our AAT Open Evenings which are held at various times throughout the year.

How will I learn?

Learning will take place mainly in a classroom environment with the opportunity to use case studies and tutorial-based exercises. Computer-based testing is used for assessment of all units, with mock exams taking place during classroom sessions. Final exams will be held at dates and times to be advised at the start of your course, but these are normally during standard class times.

What can I do next?

Successful completion of the AAT Level 4 Diploma will allow progression on to Chartered Accountancy qualifications such as ACCA or CIMA.
