Career benefits of an AAT Distance Learning course

AAT stands for the Association of Accounting Technicians. AAT accounting qualifications are globally recognised, and offer strong job prospects in a range of industries. You don’t need any previous qualifications or accountancy experience to begin studying AAT. This makes it one of the best accounting qualifications for career changers and school leavers. Once qualified, you could earn up to £37,000 within a few years of qualifying.

Eagle is an AAT-approved training provider. We have been supporting students in gaining their AAT qualifications with affordable courses for nearly 20 years. The Distance Learning study method is more flexible and cheaper than classroom study. It also allows you to study around family, work and other life priorities.

Personal support

“I can’t thank my mentor at Eagle enough for the personal support she provided me with during what was an incredibly challenging time in my life!”

What’s included in an AAT course subscription

All three AAT accounting qualifications are included in the subscription. Content is always available and always up to date, so you can refer to previous subjects and recap whenever you need to.

Our courses help you develop the knowledge and skills required to become an AAT Accountant (MAAT). After completing Level 4, you can progress to the chartered accountant qualification ACCA.

Full AAT training from Level 2 to 4 typically takes 2-3 years to complete with consistent studying. Level 2 is considered the easiest and equivalent to a GCSE. Level 4 is the most difficult level and is equivalent to the first year of an accounting degree.

What you’ll get with your AAT subscription

  • Instant access to all AAT levels
  • Study buddy: An online learning guide that replaces the tutor in the classroom and guides you through each module. It is written by Osborne Books’ subject experts and integrated to the Osborne study material
  • High quality online tutor led learning: videos provided by Kaplan that cover the tricky topic areas for each subject. All videos are supported with progress assessments to make sure you understand the topics
  • Osborne tutorial: An online study text covering the full syllabus with practical theory led examples
