AAT Courses: Campus-Plus – Level 3 Bookkeeping

Effective training programmes often require both e-learning and classroom-based training to be successful. Classroom training and e-learning both have their advantages and disadvantages. Optimal training programmes blend these two training methods to take advantage of their respective strengths. The result is more efficient and effective training.

McArthurMorgan Campus-Plus is an approach to your AAT studies that combines online educational materials and opportunities for interaction online with traditional place-based classroom methods.

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.

Payment Options

Single Payment: You have the option to pay the entire course fee in one full payment.

Spread the Payments: For some courses, we offer the flexibility to spread the cost of your tuition over several months. The course details will specify the monthly rate and the maximum duration for payments. For instance, if a course is priced at £500 with a payment plan of £100 deposit and £100 for 4 months, the total amount payable for the course remains £500, spread over a maximum period of 5 months. The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 0%

The 0% Payment Plan is an internal arrangement offered by McArthurMorgan, without the involvement of any external financial providers. This option is exclusively available for the tuition fees of McArthurMorgan courses.
