I was wondering if anyone could spare a couple of minutes and help me with this:
- I have done the first level AAT last year, since then, I have enrolled for a degree in Management with Accounting and Finance. I am currently in my first year. Recently I have applied for an AAT training agreement/school leaver route with a mid-tier company and they withdrew my application on the basis that I hold a degree (which I do not) or I am in the process of getting one which is true, apart from the fact that I have 3 years left of my degree(part time).
They have invited me to apply via the graduate route “if I qualify”. My question to you is, at what point does one qualify for the graduate route? Do I have to be in my final year, finish my degree, at any point during my course? I’m really sorry if I sound dumb:), I’m just very confused.
I can not afford to waste another 3 years of my time doing a job I will more than likely hate, when I could actually do something I look forward to, get hands on experience and work towards a qualification. I must add I am a mature student (almost 30:/) I’m just trying to take the right step here and make no mistake, which at this stage can cost me dearly.
I would really appreciate your advice.
