How will I cope with Level 4?

To start level 4 students must have either completed the level 3 Advanced Diploma in Accounting or have equivalent academic qualifications. We can advise you on an individual basis whether starting at level 4 is the right decision for you.


All units are examined by computer based assessment. Unlike other levels of the AAT qualification all results will be available 6 weeks after the exam is sat. All exams are human marked as all exams contain written content.

How long will it take?

Students should allow around 12 months to complete the level. This depends on the frequency of studies. These courses are available as either a classroom or online course. 

Which optional units should I study?

We are always happy to discuss your individual requirements with you as there is not a ‘one style fits all’ approach. Students choose the  optional units based on a variety of reasons so we want to make sure you study the best optional units for your circumstances.
