AAT Course Modules

What are the AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting Level 3 and Professional Diploma in Accounting Level 4 online course modules?

The six modules that you’ll cover in the AAT Advanced Diploma in Accounting (Level 3), are:

  •    Advanced Bookkeeping
  •    Final Accounts Preparation
  •    Indirect Tax
  •    Management Accounting: Costing
  •    Ethics for Accountants

It’s best to complete the mandatory modules first and then decide which optional modules you want to study, as your decision may change by the time you complete the mandatory modules.

One other thing to consider is that if you’re considering specialising in tax and time is approaching the end of the year, it’s best to wait until the new year, to ensure you have the most up-to-date books, as tax changes year-on-year.
