Which course shall I do? IAB, ICB or AAT?

Hi there, 

 

I graduated from the University of Bristol in 2010 with a 2.1 BSc in Accounting and Finance. Following my degree I became a maths teacher, but now want to make the move back in the the accounting industry. 

I am undecided wether I want to become a book keeper or accountant. Either way, I feel like I would need to brush up on the skills I learnt whilst at University. I am thinking about taking an online course, but don't know which one to do. I have seen ICB, IAB and AAT courses, all with different levels possible. 

 

Due to having a degree in this area I don't want to spend too much additional money retraining but also want to feel like I am up to speed ready so that I am in a great position to get a job.

 

Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks,

Anni

Hi!,

I can say from experience that the ICB courses and exams are quite challenging (for me) but since you have a degree, you might be entitled to some exemptions from ACCA (Association of Certified Chartered Accountants) exams and may become qualified faster than if you were to start over.

If you're determined to choose from ICB, IAB or AAT, I'd go with ICB.

Their membership benefits are fantastic and they're really supportive should you need to contact them about anything.

Whichever way you go, good luck!

Andrew

 I've gone with the ICB. My reason was AAT allow membership on ICB exams so best of both
