  • COURSE CONTENT

    The AAT Level 3 Diploma in Accounting consists of six individual units as listed above. Each unit is assessed by an end of unit externally set examination or assessment which covers all of the material covered in each unit. Students who successfully complete all units will be awarded the AAT Level 3 Diploma in Accounting.


    TEACHING AND LEARNING METHODS

    Students will be taught using a variety of interactive and collaborative teaching and learning methods including tutor demonstrations, pair and group work exercises, written classwork and homework exercises.


    COURSE LEVEL/ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

    It is expected that all students have already passed the AAT Level 2 Certificate in Bookkeeping or an equivalent qualification which includes manual double entry bookkeeping to this level.

    Students should have a high level of written and spoken English and maths, equivalent to at least GCSE grade ‘C’.

    Students should also have good basic IT skills and ideally have some experience of using Microsoft Excel software.


    HOW PROGRESS IS CHECKED DURING COURSE

    Progress is checked throughout the course through the completion of classwork and homework exercises. Progress will also be checked through tutor feedback given to students (including marked homework exercises) and through the use of recap exercises at the start of lessons to enable students to ensure that they have understood the work covered during the previous lesson.


    EXTRA STUDY OR PRACTICE REQUIRED AT HOME

    Students will be required to complete approximately three hours of independent study per week during the course. During the revision period for the end of unit examinations and assessments, students should expect to spend considerably longer than this in independent study.


    MATERIALS YOU WILL NEED TO BRING TO THE COURSE

    Students will need to bring a calculator to each lesson, ideally a desktop calculator. Students should also bring a pen, a pencil, highlighter pens and a notebook to each lesson. It is also strongly recommended that students purchase a course textbook for each unit.


    WHAT CAN I DO NEXT?

    Students who have successfully completed this course can apply to study on the AAT Level 4 Advanced Diploma in Accounting course or apply to universities to study an undergraduate degree in Accounting or Finance.
