What opportunities are there, after I’ve completed my online bookkeeping course?

The demand for bookkeepers is expected to keep rising. As a result, there will always be opportunities for talented and certified individuals.

Ensuring you are technically competent is vital, given the rise of lots of new bookkeeping and accountancy tools that are disrupting the marketplace. The majority of these tools are designed and developed to make your life easier. With new technologies such as automatic receipt recognition, so as to avoid time-inefficient tasks like entering bills and receipts manually.

Options include working ‘in-house’ – where you work directly for one company; working for an accounting agency – where you’re responsible for multiple companies. or working for yourself – on a contract or freelance basis.

Should I study Bookkeeping OR Accounting?

Bookkeeping is an element of accounting. It’s quicker to get qualified, meaning it’s a faster route to kick-starting a new career. However, you don’t have to choose one or the other. You can study both bookkeeping and accounting simultaneously, or you can become a qualified bookkeeper first, and then expand your skill set by studying an accountancy course later. Since all our bookkeeping and accountancy courses are online, you can even fit your studies around your work.

Why choose to study bookkeeping and accounting courses from home?

Education is becoming more and more versatile every day; students can learn in a way that best suits them and fits their lifestyles.

By enroling on an online accounting or bookkeeping course, you can study whenever you feel like it – it doesn’t matter whether you’re a night owl or an early bird. Online learning is also great for people who need to fit their learning around a full-time job or family commitments.

Plus, if you hit a snag or don’t quite understand something, you can book one-on-one time with your experienced designated tutor to help you get things back on track.

Level 2 Functional Skills in English

Level 2 Functional Skills in English - I would like to share my experiences regarding the course and the support offered by Oxbridge Home learning College. From the beginning of the course, I must admit that I felt supported by my teacher, and I was given tips about my progress and mistakes made during the test exams. These tips helped me not only to improve my communication but also to gain the qualifications needed to get to the desired studies. I would especially like to thank Sarah Peak, Examination Officer, for her persistence and help in waiting for delayed exam results this year due to changes in the condition of new papers. She constantly replays my emails straight away and supports me in any circumstances.

The best course provider!!

The best course provider!!! I have completed my childcare level 3 in early years course with Oxbridge. I had a terrible experience and was left in a mess with another course provider. When I joined with Oxbridge I was reassured by all the lovely tutors I was in contact with. The course went smoothly and I enjoyed doing my work because I felt I was learning something this time round. Thank you to Lisa and Faye who have been so supportive and the best tutors. I would recommend Oxbridge to everyone and I cannot wait to start another course 😊

Oxbridge review - great customer service…

Spoke to Stacey at Oxbridge as I needed a small extension to complete my Level 3 Counselling course. She was professional, helpful and friendly and provided a 1 month extension which means I can complete my course and not panic about it. Great customer service. Thank you.

I would highly recommend this company. My daughter has just started a course and right from the start the information given was clear and straightforward. The course material is easy to understand with step by step guidance and information and a tutor easy to contact at any time. Really happy with the customer service received and was even supplied a paper format. The best online course I have used to-date. Thank you A ****

With so much conflicting information about home learning it was wonderful to have some clear help and advise from Lilly I am now on the right course for me. Lilly went out of her way and was (and still is as I’ve had a wobble) kind, patience and offered lots of reassurance. Looking forward to seeing how the course progresses Thank you Lilly and Oxbridge :)

Fantastic customer service
trustpilot rating
I am extremely interested in persuing a career within the Criminolgy sector. I saw a course advertised online which I thought would be ideal to help in furthering my education. However, when I enquired about it further, the gentleman on the phone advised me that this course would not be useful to me. This was because it was more of an detailed insight into forensics and not a pathway into University. I felt a bit deflated but I appreciated the fact that he was honest rather than take money from me for a course he knew wouldn't help me. To my surprise he stayed on the line and took time out to go through other potential options such as an HND and looking at public services. He then emailed me all the links and told me if I ever needed any further help to give him a call. This, I thought was excellent service despite my not enrolling. The gentleman's name was Travis and he truly is a fountain of knowledge. He's polite, professional, charming and a credit to Oxbridge! Thanks again Travis for giving me some hope, all the best.

Jenny Tidmarsh - AMAZING, AWESOME TUTOR
trustpilot rating
I have just completed my Level 3 TA course and want to thank Jenny Tidmarsh for all her support and guidance. Her response to all my e-mails was super quick and she always gave positive and constructive advice. Doing an online course, and especially during this pandemic has been challenging to say the least. Jenny has been an absolute life saver, calming frazzled nerves and giving sound advice and encouragement every single time. She is truly the most amazing tutor I could have ever wished for during my journey. If I could have rated higher than 5 stars I would gladly do so.

I wholeheartedly love this college and everyone involved :). Travis has been an absolute champ, skilfully guiding me through the application process; Carys has been patiently replying to my exhaustive questions concerning the A-Level Business. Verity always goes above and beyond with her prompt responses to my conundrums. They are not "basic" in their answers; their passion for learning and assisting is apparent, and therefore, I couldn't recommend Oxbridge enough. M
