AAT Courses: Campus-Plus – Combined Level 2 & 3 Super Fast-Track

The best training programmes often strike a balance between e-learning and face-to-face, classroom-based learning. Both approaches come with their own sets of pros and cons. The trick is to blend them, capitalising on the strengths of each, which results in a more efficient and impactful learning experience.

McArthur Morgan’s Campus-Plus is precisely this type of learning approach for your AAT studies. We’ve mixed the best of both worlds by pairing online educational resources and the chance to interact virtually with the tried-and-tested methods of traditional classroom learning. This offers a comprehensive and dynamic course for the AAT Levels 2 and 3, that’s sure to set you on the path to accounting success.

What is Campus-Plus?

You will gain access to the distance learning element via our online learning platform, allowing you to receive help from tutors and your fellow students.

You will also attend our “brick-and-mortar” campus at the University of Law in central London, with a teacher present for both face-to-face classroom in-person lessons, as well as one-to-one tutorials with your tutor.

This allows you to benefit from the sense of cohesion and support that a physical classroom naturally provides, providing a sense of community and support.

Who’s it for?

This is the perfect option if you want the flexibility of distance learning to fit around your life or to learn at your own pace, but also need the structure and support of a face-to-face classroom environment, so that you can feel supported and be successful in your studies. This means that you can get the best of both worlds; face-to-face teaching and digital learning.

Initial e-learning can better prepare learners for the classroom experience. Classroom time is reserved for more meaningful exercises, getting you better equipped for the real exam itself.

Now is a good time to prepare and improve your CV with the skills and qualifications valued by potential employers.
