The Complete University Guide
Edge Hill University evaluation:
14.0 : 1
Computer sciences and IT evaluation:
Information Technology is a strategic resource within any business and is critical to the survival and success of an organisation and should therefore be carefully managed. A key issue in IT strategy is Information Security, which is becoming more critical with the interconnection of systems through the Internet and the sharing of resources with business partners, clients and customers.
This Master’s degree is aimed at current or prospective system managers, system administrators and other IT professionals with a responsibility or aspiration for strategic IT and security management.
You will gain an understanding of current issues in information security and IT management, together with an in-depth knowledge of a variety of techniques for strategically managing IT, both as a resource as well as for analysing and controlling security risks. A key aspect of the programme is the systemic perspective that is taken; security is not simply a technical issue, but a component of the wider context of IT management.
You will need to have a degree equivalent to UK second class honours (normally 2.2 or above) with 50% or more computing content.
IELTS: 6.5 (no lower than 6.0 in each)

There are some 70 different sports and societies on offer including sports such as football, rugby, swimming and golf as well as student run media opportunities, volunteer and charity work and much more.
