The ATHE Level 5 Diploma in Cyber Security is made up of four units with four written assignments at each level. On completion of the units, students will be given access to the assignments. The assignments are approximately 5,000-8,000 words each.

Programme Overview

The rationale of the programme is to provide a career path for learners who wish to develop their core capabilities within the cyber security and risk management sector.

The Level 5 units and assignments of this course are equivalent to the second year of a University Degree. Our Level 5 Diploma in Cyber Security is a 120-credit course, it includes four units and written assignments at each level. 

This Level 5 qualification is potentially unique because it is about ‘cyber security’ as a workplace management discipline. It is therefore a semi-technical qualification that examines technical cyber security measures as well as the management, project management and leadership skills required to organise internal and external business responses to major incidents (or the threat of such).
