Should I gain AAT qualifications in my 'year off'

Why bother with a post grad course - waste of time? 17-10-2016
    • Thread Starter

    Hello,I have recently graduated from university and am working as a finance assistant for the year due to not creating enough time to apply for a graduate scheme, so instead I am planning to apply for a 2017 graduate scheme in accountancy.As I have a lot of spare time this year, I would be able to study AAT and gain qualifications. I am looking for any advice on whether this would be worth doing considering a lot of graduate schemes put you through these qualifications anyway.Thank you

    If you are already working in finance and have the time to study for the AAT around your work then I don't see why not.
