Why accountancy subscription learning is cost-effective

Piggy bank


If you’re considering a career in accountancy, you might be wondering which route to take. Classroom-based, distance learning, or a mix? As distance learning experts, we believe this is the best option to allow you to spread your wings.

Some training providers tie you into a minimum term, which could be an incentive to persevere through the levels. However, most students could be paying more than they ought to. If you finish your course early, you’ll often end up paying for this on top of any new courses you start. And if life gets in the way and stops your studies, you’ll be forking out an extra expense without reaping any of the benefits.

With a subscription, you can start learning whenever it suits you. You can turn it off anytime. You only pay for what you use and you’re entirely in control. Because of this, you’re more likely to save on your training costs. And you’ll know that you’re getting the most out of your money.

If you’re not wanting to start for a few months, you don’t need to purchase until you’re ready. Once you subscribe, you immediately get access to learning materials and your course. No more paying for what you don’t use.

What are the average costs of accountancy learning?

Say you wanted to start an AAT accountancy course. The average training provider fee for Level 2, according to the AAT, is between £600 – £2,000 + AAT fees and assessment fees.* That’s no small cost to be thrown away.

With an Eagle subscription, the average training fee for Level 2 is between £270 – £540 + AAT fees and assessment fees. So Eagle students could save up to £1,460 with a subscription (based on an average completion time of 6-12 months).

Similarly, for Level 3, the AAT’s average training provider fee ranges from £900 – £2,000 + AAT fees and assessment fees*. With Eagle’s subscription, you pay the same no matter what level you’re on. So you could save up to another £1,460 (based on an average completion time of 6-12 months).

The more you study, and the quicker you complete the course, the more you’ll save. And because you fit your studies around your life, you have more freedom to find the time. So if your employer doesn’t cover your training costs, or you’re simply studying for a new career, subscription could be the perfect option for you.
