Am I able to become an accountant through business studiesWatch
Advice on studying business at university
I'm still confused on the route that I need to become an accoutant so when I do this course will it be the same as doing accounting
The ICAEW (Chartered accountants) website has useful information:
as does the ACCA
Doing an accountancy degree at university will mean that you get exemptions from some of the exams, whereas if you do a different degree (History, Chemistry etc) you have to do all the papers, as you do if you take the non-university route.
Accountants take A levels (and degrees) in a wide variety of subjects (most do not have an A level in accountancy), although you have to be comfortable and good with numbers
Many people working in high street general practices may have gone down the AAT route to qualify as an accounting technician. They can then go on to take ICAEW or ACCA exams if they want to advance their career. https://www.aat.org.uk/
