The OTHM Diploma further enhances your employability and credentials, opening doors to even more career opportunities.
Benefits of OTHM Diploma

Dual certification ensures that you possess both theoretical knowledge and practical skills, making you a well-rounded professional.
How to Obtain OTHM Diploma
To pursue the OTHM Diploma alongside your MSc degree, follow these simple steps:
1. Request to include the OTHM Diploma Level 7 as an add-on to your MSc course during your enrollment.
2. Pay the registration and course fee for the OTHM Diploma in convenient installments.
3. Successfully complete the OTHM assessments.
4. Pay the graduation fee upon completion.

Integrating OTHM courses into your MSc program does not increase your overall study workload. As both programs are compatible, you can seamlessly navigate through the curriculum. However, you should be prepared for an additional assessment workload to meet the requirements of both Eton University and OTHM assessments.
OTHM assessments can include coursework such as presentations, essays, reports and case studies. All the work submitted is assessed internally by Eton University and externally by OTHM.
If being in charge of schemes, resources and people motivates you, and you can work under pressure to tight deadlines, a career as a project manager may suit you.
As a project manager, you'll need to track work to be completed, set deadlines and delegate tasks to your project team, identifying any potential risks.
Ultimately, you're responsible for completing the project work in line with the plan and will often report progress to senior managers.
