Progression Routes

We believe that it is essential for learners to have a range of progression routes from our qualifications. For some learners this will be straight into employment and a career, for others there is the opportunity for progression to a university degree.

All of these progression routes demonstrate the relevance of the learning in the ATHE qualifications and their recognised value to the qualification to universities and employers.

Top up to a British degree by Interactive Online learning - 16.5.16

ATHE is excited to enter into a partnership with Western International College (WINC) Online  that will  enable learners who achieve the ATHE Level 4 and 5 Extended Diplomas in Management to progress to a BA(Hons) top-up in Business Administration and holders of the Level 7 Diploma in Strategic Management to top up to an MBA.

The degrees will be offered by London Metropolitan University and can be completed fully through interactive Online learning through WINC Online. ATHE qualified students can enjoy special fee rebates in doing so. For more information such as price and duration see details in our list of progression routes below or contact us via our Contact Us page.
