Course overview

This course will benefit students looking to move into an accounting or finance field or thinking of
studying business and accounting at university.   This course is ideal for anyone who has already achieved Level 2  AAT Foundation Certificate in Accounting.

Accounting is the recording, analysis, presentation and forecasting data, principally, but not exclusively, for business organisations.

There are many users of accounting information: managers, shareholders, customers, suppliers and the wider public.  These users require information for a variety of purposes and it is important that it is
prepared accurately and interpreted meaningfully.

We recommend that you take Core Maths alongside this course.
