As a result of the continuing digital revolution, computer systems are involved with just about every aspect of modern life. Increasingly devices are Internet enabled and whilst this connectivity has many advantages, it also brings vulnerabilities to our personal data, interference with the operation of our devices and hijacking of their capabilities. As a result of this, business, society and government need experts in the evaluation of these risks who can also design and implement mitigation strategies. Our Cyber Security degree is a contemporary computing programme that will equip graduates to work in this exciting and rapidly growing field.

How much does it cost?

Full-time course is: £6,009 per year

For the academic year 2017/18, each six week block will cost £1,502.25. A full academic year is made up of four of these blocks, so this means that a normal full-time year is £6,009. This covers some of your learning materials, all your classes and online tutorials.

The part-time course fee is dependent on how many modules you choose to study in an academic year.

Each stage of the qualification (HNC/HND/Degree) will require you to complete four academic blocks. You can study up to four blocks in one academic year or study at a slower pace (usually three academic blocks per year). Please note if you do study at a slower pace you will need to re-enrol to complete your studies in the next academic year.

For the academic year 2017/18 each block for part-time students will cost £1,502.25. Therefore, the total fee per stage of your qualification if completed in the academic year 2017/18 is: £6,009.


As a full-time student or part-time student resident in the UK or EU, you can apply for a loan to cover the cost of your tuition fees at Student Finance England.
