    Hi,

    So I finished my chemistry degree a couple of years ago, and I've had a few jobs since, a few of which were slightly related to my degree but nothing's really grabbed my attention.

    I wanted to go into accountancy after uni, my plan was to try and get a placement to study accountancy while working as a junior (you know those quasi-apprenticeship things), but it never really happened.

    I've got some savings now and I've decided to bite the bullet and fund it myself, working part time around my job. However there seems to be a fairly massive difference between the pricing of the courses, depending on who you study with. This makes me rather suspicious. If anyone has a recommendation for me I would be very grateful.

    Thanks,
    Noah

    Why AAT if you are a graduate? You could go straight to ACCA or CIMA. Try local colleges for AAT but note that they are set up for people with day release so may be limiting when you find work.
