The Cyber Security Extended Degree BSc (Hons) includes a foundation year (Year 0), designed to prepare you for the challenge of studying at undergraduate level.
With greater advances in technology, the need for cyber security has increased. New threats surface constantly, highlighting the need for specialised individuals to help combat this danger and keep information secure.
You’ll study core subjects including programming, networking, cyber security and mathematics, all in a highly supportive environment that will give you the confidence and knowledge to join the full honours degree course at the right level.
You’ll gain the kind of solid practical, problem-solving and analytical preparation that gives you a strong basis for future success. The extra year really makes a difference, and many students on the extended degree have gone on to obtain first class honours degrees followed by immediate highly paid employment.
