Cyber Security Education Programmes

Full-time BSc Cyber Security

Our full-time undergraduate programme is one of only two in the UK to receive provisional certification as a Bachelor’s Degree from the National Cyber Security Centre (a part of GCHQ). The course has a strong technical focus so that you understand precisely how the digital parts of cyber systems function. However, the role played by people, processes and the physical environment in achieving cyber security is also a critical part of your study. Taken together, you will learn how to harden the security posture of an organisation's cyber systems.
