Meet: Stephanie

Meet Stephanie, an Oaklands College student studying an AAT Level 3 Advanced Diploma.


Name: Stephanie
Course Studying: AAT Level 3 Advanced Diploma in Accounting

The Advanced qualification introduces more detailed financial tasks, including maintaining cost accounting records and preparation of reports and returns. You will also master a range of accounting disciplines from ethical practices for accountants to advanced bookkeeping.

We sat down with Stephanie to discuss her Oaklands experience:

“Tell us about your time at Oaklands. What led you to study here and what have you enjoyed about your time at college?” 

I only started studying at Oaklands in September 2019, so my time here has been short so far. I came to study at Oaklands through an Apprenticeship which I found through a government website, which was really exciting as I already knew about the St Albans campus.

At Oaklands, I enjoy learning more about the subject area that I am passionate about, with other students who are equally as determined to complete their academic goals.”

What are you plans for the future? 

“I am still studying at Oaklands for my AAT Level 3 Advanced Diploma, I hope to progress onto the Level 4 programme and then into employment.”

What would you say has been the major highlight of your time at Oaklands? 

“One of the major highlights I have had so far at Oaklands is meeting new people on my course, we can share experiences and help each other achieve better.”

What advice would you give to today’s Oaklands students if you had chance?

“One piece of advice that I would offer to current and future students would be to listen to your tutors as they have the experience and expertise that will help you achieve what you want to.”

Would you recommend the course that you studied? 

“I would 100% recommend the AAT Level 3 Advanced Diploma to anyone who wants to expand their knowledge of accounting in general, because it will help them to understand the work that they are undertaking in a more advanced way.”
