Professional accounting qualifications for adults at Brighton MET

Study AAT and accountancy courses at Brighton MET

We appreciate that the pace of everyday life is getting faster, which is why we’ve looked for new ways of teaching – ways that make it easier to study alongside work and life commitments.

We have worked in partnership with Mindful Education to create a suite of blended learning courses that provide flexible study options, combining online learning with face-to-face lessons in the classroom.

Our range of part-time professional courses offers the best of both worlds, requiring less time in college than traditional classroom-only courses, and allowing learners to choose how, when and where they want to study.

Please note: the cost of AAT registration and membership is not included in the course fee. The fee for every first exam per unit, taken during the duration of the course as per course calendar, is included. However, you will need to cover the cost of resits or any exams taken outside of the course calendar.
