Why study AAT courses online?

There are plenty of study options available. The traditional option is to study at a local college.

But not everyone wants a rigidly structured study experience, and it’s tough balancing work and family life around a restrictive college timetable even if you are lucky enough to live a short drive away from a college offering the right course.

By studying AAT courses online you are set free from the restrictions of an old-fashioned college environment and you can enrol all year round. When you’re studying with us you can learn when you want to, at your own pace. And with our outstanding pass rates you can feel reassured that you have access to top quality study material and tutor support.

After 27 years of offering home study courses, we have the experience to provide an online learning experience that competitors can’t match. And that’s why we’ve won over 20 awards including:

And in 2021 one of our students won the prestigious ‘PQ Of The Year’ at the PQ Awards.
