I’d recommend people go straight into accountancy from college, I went to university because I didn’t know what to do. Yes, you can accelerate past AAT if you have a degree, but it’s only a few modules and you actually start ACCA behind those who began straight from college.

I joined Champion as an audit and accounts semi senior and from day one instantly hit the ground running. I’ve achieved ACCA status and been encouraged to take advantage of the wealth of training and progression opportunities available within the group.
