Requirements

You should have the equivalent of a British Honours degree (2:1 minimum) in a relevant subject. We are happy to consider equivalent qualifications from anywhere in the world. If English is not your first language an IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent when you start the course is essential. English Language tuition, delivered by our British Council accredited Centre for English Language Learning, is available both before and throughout the course if you need it. If you have no formal academic qualifications but do have extensive industry experience we will consider your application on an individual basis. Whilst the University tries to ensure that all of its programmes run as advertised it is sometimes necessary to make significant changes to the structure of the programmes or to discontinue a programme entirely if for instance there are insufficient student numbers or staff changes. This will sometimes happen between an offer being made and enrolment. Where changes are made the University will endeavour to inform applicants as early as possible to minimise the potential disruption to the application process. Where possible an alternative programme will be offered in a similar subject area. In cases where programmes are changed or discontinued the University will send a communication to you electronically and/or by hard copy outlining your options.

Career opportunities

Graduates are likely to be employed as cyber security specialists within law enforcement, government or other related agencies, in commercial IT departments or security consultancies, or in other computing positions where cyber security is an issue. The involvement of Deloitte in designing the course and supporting its delivery and development will assure it remains current and supportive of the real challenges cyber security specialist face in the rapidly changing cyber domain. Opportunities also exist for further academic study towards a PhD and a career in research.
