This extended course is perfect if you want a degree in Cyber Security and Networks but you don’t have the standard qualifications.

First we prepare you for your degree during an extra Foundation year, bringing you up to speed with academic skills and a firm grounding in the subject. Then you can go on to do the full undergraduate degree.

The cyber security landscape is constantly evolving and organisations are finding it increasingly difficult to defend themselves from these constantly changing and persistent threats. It is critical that both business and government agencies protect their systems and data from potential risks arising from these threats. Because of this, there is a demand for qualified cyber security professionals.

Our Cyber Security and Networks degree course is an opportunity for you to develop knowledge and skills necessary to address these challenges and meet the demand.

The course aims to give you a fundamental understanding of how to protect organisations, networks, IT systems and individuals against cyber attacks and potential risks.

You will be thought by staff are actively engaged in cyber security research and possess substantial experience of the application of security-related technologies in industry.
