To become an accountant, you typically need to have a relevant degree or professional qualification. For example, AAT qualifications offer a route into accounting for those with little or no experience. AAT qualifications start at Level 1 and go up to Level 4, with each providing a different level of expertise and understanding.
AAT qualifications offer a flexible, affordable, and internationally-recognised route into the accounting profession, making them the best choice for those looking to get into and advance in the industry.
Having accounting qualifications opens up a wide range of career opportunities beyond becoming an accountant. Other jobs that you can do with accounting qualifications include Financial Analyst, Tax Consultant, Audit Manager, Budget Analyst, Business Advisor, Risk Analyst, Investment Banker and Forensic Accountant.
However, the skills and knowledge gained through accounting courses can be applied to a wide range of roles in finance, business and beyond.
The average salary for an accountant varies depending on the role, level of experience, and location. In the UK, the average salary for an AAT qualified accountant is £24,000 per year, rising to £30,000 with experience.
