This AAT (Association of Accounting Technicians) Foundation course is an entry-level accounting qualification, ideal for anyone who is seeking an introduction to basic accounting principles and skills.

This flexible course is delivered in partnership with Mindful Education and combines online learning with face-to-face lessons in the classroom.

Course description

This Accounting course is a foundation level on the accountancy qualification route. If you are new to accounting and finance or want to brush up on your knowledge and skills, this would be the ideal level for you to start.

Studying the AAT qualification will equip you with a range of basic accounting principles and techniques, from costings and double-entry bookkeeping to computerised accounting.

Online and On Campus

We have partnered with Mindful Education to deliver this course through our Online and On Campus model.

Online video lectures are available on-demand, and can be viewed from your phone, tablet or computer, meaning you can choose how, when and where you want to study. Each lesson lasts around 45 minutes and is accompanied by animations and motion graphics to bring concepts to life. Exercises, interactive case studies and analytical tools help to enhance the learning experience further.

On campus, you benefit from regular college classes without committing to attending multiple evenings each week. An experienced college tutor will discuss and reinforce what you have learnt during your online study and will be on hand to provide guidance on progress and assessment. Discussion and debate with classmates will help you apply theories to situations you face in the workplace.
