Opening doors to different career opportunities, accounting has remained a highly coveted specialisation. Demand for qualified accountants is continuously rising, but few know that one does not need a university degree to pursue this career.

The Hong Kong Institute of Accredited Accounting Technicians (HKIAAT) offers the Accredited Accounting Technician (AAT) qualification to sub-degree holders and will be ready to explain the programme at the Education and Recruitment Fair on July 21.

'We provide a unique pathway for people without a university degree who are looking for opportunities to advance their credentials in accounting,' says Professor Stella Cho, president of HKIAAT.

No academic degree or prior accounting experience is needed for the admission of AAT candidates, who can apply starting from the age of 16.

'The AAT qualification provides a practical skills-based approach to acquiring knowledge,' Cho adds.
