Distance learning FAQs
How will I be assessed?
You will be assessed the same as classroom based students by Computer Based Assessments and Computer Based Projects.
Can I sit my assessments at home?
No, although you will be able to study from home, you will need to make arrangements to sit your assessments at a local centre.
Where do I sit my assesssments?
If you don’t live near your provider you can sit your CBAs at a venue which accepts external candidates. They will charge assessment fees, and some may charge an additional admin fee as well.
When you’re ready to sit an assessment, contact us and we will give you the details of your CBA venue. Then you can contact them directly to arrange your assessment and pay the appropriate fees.
You can download a list of approved venues (PDF) where you can sit your assessments. These organisations will not be your training provider, but are approved exam venues.
Can I study without a provider?
As the AAT Accounting Qualification is skills-based and involves computer based assessments, you cannot study it completely independently.
Why do the tuition fees vary?
Tuition fees are determined by our training providers and include various costs for materials, tuition support and sometimes, AAT fees too. By speaking with providers they can advise you on what their tuition fees are and what this includes. We recommend ringing around.
