Today we’ll discuss a few possible self-funding options for those interested in studying an AAT course. If you’re looking for information about how to obtain funding to study an AAT course, check out our AAT Funding post.

Pay Online

A number of institutions accept full course payment via their websites. This is the quickest, easiest way to ensure you have a place on your chosen AAT course. Prospective students can pay course fees via debit card or via PayPal. Be sure to check the AAT course provider website for specific details, and look out for offers and discounts.

Interest-Free Payment Plan

Some AAT providers offer students interest-free course fee loans. Kaplan, for example, allows students to spread the course fees out over a maximum of 12 months. This is inclusive of each method of course deliverance (classroom/distance learning). Often, the provider would require a down payment or deposit, and the student would need to fulfil certain requirements. Be sure to check with the individual provider for the particular details for this payment method.


Thanks to the UK Government’s Apprenticeship Levy, employers (depending on their paybill) can use a dedicated fund to employ someone through the apprenticeship scheme. This means the employee will be paid to work (a minimum of 30 hours per week) and will also attend AAT tutoring classes through an AAT provider. It’s ideal for those looking to earn whilst studying. This route has the benefit of giving hands on experience from day one. Experienced job seekers will understand just how useful the balance between gaining first-hand experience alongside a relevant qualification can be.
