Outcomes and Progression

The AAT qualification is globally recognised due to its excellence. In any financial environment you are viewed as a desirable employee when working towards or attaining the Intermediate Certificate (Level 2). The Advanced Diploma (Level 3) is seen by many as a natural progression as it builds on the skills previously attained, whilst the Higher Diploma,(Level 4) will allow you to practise as a self-employed accountant. The Higher Diploma also allows partial exemptions on the route to Chartered ACCA or CIMA status.
