What Bieke thinks of her AAT Accounting study experience

Bieke already had an accounting degree from her studies in Belgium. But when she came over to the UK she wanted to gain a recognised set of qualifications in this country. And after driving past the Training Link offices every day, curiosity got the better of her and she googled us to find out more about what we did. It turned out, we offered exactly what she wanted.

We recently sat down with her to find out more about her experience of studying the AAT levels 2, 3, and 4 course with Training Link.
