    Hi Danni, I would recommend doing all of your AAT whilst in work and then going onto your CIMA - a lot of employers will pay to put you through both. CIMA is recognised better by future employers than an accounting degree. You don't have to have AAT to do your CIMA although it does make you exempt from 4 of the topics. You should do some research and consider going straight into CIMA rather than do 2 more years of AAT.
