Course overview

This course is ideal if you wish to develop knowledge and practical experience of the principles of accounting for sole trader and partnership businesses. The units to be studied are:


Advanced Bookkeeping
Final Accounts Preparation
Management Accounting: Costing
Indirect Tax

You will learn through experiencing a varied programme which includes solving simulated problems, lectures, group work, discussions and attempting past exam papers. You will also be required to study away from weekly lectures to ensure exam success.

What else do I need to know?

Please note that courses run subject to minimum viable class sizes and there may be additional costs for books, materials or other expenses.

What are the entry requirements?

The normal route to the Level 3 Diploma is to progress from the successful completion of Level 2. You should have a minimum merit grade and it must have been achieved within the last 12 months. However, entry may also be granted to Level 3, for applicants with appropriate accounting experience and/or qualifications, subject to an interview and completion of a pre-course written assessment.

How is it assessed?

Each unit is assessed by an externally set, computer based examination where a minimum of 70 per cent of the marks are required to demonstrate competency.

What financial support is on offer?

If you are 19-23, it is your first Level 3, and are studying an SFA approved Level 3 programme you may be eligible for full fee remission.
You can apply for an Advanced Learning Loan or Higher Education Loan to help with the costs of your course if you are 19 or older and the course you are studying is an eligible Level 3, 4, 5 or 6 course.
*This is at the Colleges discretion.

What can I do next?

Most students progress to our AAT Level 4 Professional Diploma in Accounting or use the qualification for 'on the job' career progression purposes.
