Hi all,

I am currently looking to go further in my path to level 3 and 4 and finishing the current level 2 in the local college.
I am looking for an affordable and realistic way to going through of this and I have the venue:

- Osborne Training which offer distance and online learning in one solution the said that the whole course Lvl 3 and 4 will be complete in approximately 6-7 months.

- McArthur Morgan offer distance and online "on demand as well I suppose each level for 12 month each it does not say in the website.

- Eagle Education it is totally education online on demand pay as you go monthly with no contract.

Please any advice or experience will be highly appreciate.

Thank you all in advance.
Andy

    Hi Andy

    You'll need to pick the option that suits you best.

    Are you in work at the moment/planning to be while studying and if so how much?

    If yes then I'd probably suggest the slower option (though with on demand you can ultimately go as fast as you want)

    If no then you shold have plenty of time for the osborne training option.

    To give you an idea:

    I did my learning through accountancy learning which is all online and book study and you can choose if you want a tutor or not. On level 4 I was working full time and had a tutor (who mostly just marked exams for me huge help for written sections) and finished in about 6 months.

    I study on line (on demand) with text books.... suits me perfectly as I work full time..... i need the visuals to assist with my learning.... If I just had text books I reckon I would struggle

    I am subscribed to Eagle and love the flexibility, but a few study buddies are with Accountancy Learning and they recommend it too.

    @livintiv

    It was fairly constant but with AAT possible as you can take the exam as soon as you're ready. Also got lucky with the synoptic timing lining up with my schedule otherwise would have been an extra 2 months.
