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.

Course information

This course examines the principles and threats which underpin computer systems, networks and the software development process. Throughout the programme you will become competent and confident in a range of prevalent topics, such as operating systems, network security, programming language, penetration testing, ethical hacking and more.



Year one

This year of the programme introduces you to the core fundamentals that underpin computing science. You will explore the importance of IT security, and the risks posed to computer systems globally. In addition, you will develop your professional problem-solving skills, as you understand the basic principles of programming. Most of the modules in this year contain a practical element, so that you receive the best combination of theoretical and hands-on learning. Students who complete year one are awarded a HNC in Computing Science.

  • Networking
  • Operating Systems
  • Information Security
  • Problem Solving and Programming

Year two

Building on knowledge gained in year one, this year is aimed at building your skillset to an advanced standard. You’ll develop object-orientated analysis, design and implementation skills as you explore complex subjects such as cryptography, digital forensic science and algorithms. Towards the end of the year our skilled lecturers work with you to refine transferable employability skills, as you prepare for a career in computing as a global citizen. Students who complete year one are awarded a Higher National Diploma (HND) in Cyber Security.

  • Cryptography
  • Computer Forensics
  • Algorithms and Data Structures
  • Communications and Collaboration

Placement year

Sandwich years and placement years give you the opportunity to gain further insight into the industry or career you are seeking to follow. This enables you to contextualise the theoretical models and concepts discussed in the classroom in the work place. Furthermore, if you choose to take advantage of a placement or sandwich year, this version of the degree will help to increase your employment prospects by acquiring skills and gaining an understanding of what employers expect of graduates.

Final year

In the final year of study, you look at complex subjects such as the Internet of things and the underlying principles. You will analyse and evaluate potential risk and exploitation in secure programming, and assess a range of issues such as buffer overflows and how to mitigate a number of security risks. Finally, you’ll get the chance to demonstrate your skills in a number of independent projects, taking charge of processes from inception to delivery. Students who complete year three are awarded a BSc (Hons) Degree in Cyber Security.

  • Secure Programming
  • Internet of Things
  • Contemporary Issues in Computing

We’ve spent £14 million on a brand new campus building. It’s a purpose-built, state of-the-art development that is one of the most modern facilities in the UK. It includes a library, IT suites, mock law court, engineering and science labs, cafe and lots of individual and group study spaces. Next to us is Scarborough’s new leisure village. The complex includes an Olympic legacy swimming pool, sports hall, fitness suite, all weather pitches and the new Scarborough Athletic football ground.


This course has been developed and is taught by practising professionals and industry experts. Our academics bring a wealth of expertise to the classroom with many continuing to undertake research and other projects alongside teaching, meaning our students gain a well-rounded and relevant teaching experience.

Practical Experience

Throughout your studies, you will find that the course is underpinned with practical elements. This course puts a strong emphasis on pragmatic learning, meaning our graduates are already accustomed to industry standard software and equipment by the time they enter workplace.


At CU Scarborough, we put a strong focus on getting our graduates ready to enter the job market. This can be done in a variety of ways—one key element is work placements. With this degree, you are given the opportunity to undertake short and long-term placements in between the second and third year.


How much does it cost?

Full-time course is: £7,301 (per year)
