The AAT Professional Diploma in Accounting (Level 4) is made up of four mandatory modules; an assessment, and a choice of five optional modules. You’ll need to complete all the mandatory modules and two of the five optional modules, in order to complete the course.
It’s best to complete the mandatory modules first, before deciding which optional modules you'll want to study. Should you want to specialise in tax, you’ll want to consider waiting until you have most of the new year ahead of you, before requesting the textbooks, as tax changes year-on-year and you don't want to have an out-of-date textbook.
We include the study text so that you have everything you need to study, including textbooks and exam revision kits, so that you can test yourself at home and be sure you’re fully prepared for the exam.
As this course is delivered via textbook, your course will never expire, meaning you can take the exams when you’re ready.
