I don't think you can apply for a degree apprenticeship through the university. You may likely need to apply for the apprenticeship through the employer.

Having said that, the following degree programs seem to accept AAT as part of their entry requirements:
https://www.birmingham.ac.uk/undergr...equirementsTab
https://www.wlv.ac.uk/courses/ba-hon...g-and-finance/
https://www.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/cours...ng-finance-ba/ (requires a level 4 certificate though)

https://www.bcu.ac.uk/courses/accoun...c-hons-2021-22
https://www.ucp.ac.uk/business-and-p...nd-finance-20/

I cannot confirm whether the following degree courses accept AAT, but they do accept evidence of prior learning, and you will need to contact thier undergrad admin department to be sure:

https://www.bournemouth.ac.uk/study/...unting-finance
https://www.mmu.ac.uk/study/undergra...y-requirements

If you're ever unsure whether the university that you want to apply to accepts AAT for the degree course you're interested in, it pays to contact their undergrad admissions department to check.

See the following calculator in case you want to calculate your tariff points:
https://www.ucas.com/ucas/tariff-calculator

I appreciate that a number of the universities out there do not seem to accept AATs, which is incredibly strange considering that you could easily get exemptions towards the same accounting modules and qualifications that the degree courses provide exemptions for.
You get the following exemptions for the following accounting bodies:


To be frank, I think it's also a lot more economical to do your accounting qualification outside of uni through an approved course provider for your accounting qualification than going through uni.

My goodness. Thank you for your detailed reply. I really appreciate it. In your last paragraph do you mean it's better not to bother with a degree just get the accounting qualifications while working in a company?

It depends on you. I am not sure how the employers will perceive it.

For me a 3 year degree will require at least £27000, whereas if you do the qualifications where there are probably 14 modules you have to do, you're looking at £300 or so for the first 4, £500 for the next 5, £600 for the last 4 or 5 = 1200+2500+3000 = 6700 (you might want to check on these figures with the course provider of your choice). The exam fees on top would cost £100 per module at most (to my knowledge), which means the total is £8100. That's presuming you took no exemptions using your AAT, which means the total can be lower still (you need to pay exemption fees for your modules though). The most number of exemptions the accounting degree will allow you to have (if you have chosen the appropriate modules) is 9, so you will still need to take the last 4 or 5 modules yourself.
It's unlikely you will be able to pass all your exams within a 2 years if you go with an employer, so it's more likely the cost will be spread over 3.

People have done it through the degree and without a degree, and there are advantages and disadvantages to both e.g. if you study through an employer, they will only pay for the course once, and they're not fond of retakes. You might want a second opinion though.

Employers will value experience more than theoretical knowledge anyway.

You need to decide what your end goals are. Do you want to be an AP/AR clerk? Do you want to work in an in-house finance role? Do you want to work in consulting/big 4?

In any instance, I really don't think you need a degree -- especially not one in accounting. They're not particularly valued in the industry. If you want to go to university you would be better off studying a more academic topic. Vocational university degrees are broadly a waste of time and money. The most sought-after graduate roles won't particularly care whether you have a degree in accounting or hovercraft surgery, as long as you have one. Even then, it's only useful for getting your foot in the door. Once you have your professional qualifications nobody cares whether you have a degree.

If your goal is simply to have a successful career in accounting then your best bet is to pursue an apprenticeship at a reputable firm. Skip the degree altogether -- you will qualify quicker and without debt, and your career will progress quicker.
