Achieve an internationally recognised qualification along with the knowledge and skills required to boost your earning potential in a range of professional environments. With ATHE qualifications you will also have the opportunity to progress to a degree through one of ATHE’s University progression routes.
ATHE qualifications demonstrate to employers and other educational establishments that you have achieved a specific level of understanding and ability. If you decide not to go straight into employment and would rather continue your studies at a university, we have a large variety of progression routes through our university partners to various degree programmes.
