Course Summary

There is currently a worldwide shortage of skilled practitioners in cyber security. Our MSc is specifically designed to give students a well-rounded, multidisciplinary view of the subject area, embracing not only the technical subjects, but also aspects of criminology, risk management, law and social sciences. The programme has been awarded certification against the ‘GCHQ Certified Master’s degree in General Cyber Security’ standard. We are one of only 14 universities recognised as an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research by the UK government.


Semester one: Foundations of Cyber Security; Implementing Cyber Security; Software Engineering and Cyber Security; Software Project Management and Development; Machine Learning; The Management of Corporate Security; Corporate Risk Management Processes; Criminal Behaviour.

Semester two: Cybercrime, Insecurity and the Dark Web; Secure Systems; Cryptography.

Plus three-month independent research project culminating in a dissertation.
