This is an online blended learning postgraduate programme that builds a student's ability to locate, extract and analyse data from multiple sources and to appreciate the appropriate use of relevant tools within cyber-security. This programme is aimed at individuals interested in cyber-security, but who lack the formal qualifications to join one of our conventional Master's programmes.

The development of IT skills is embedded in all the subject areas studied.
