Northumbria University’s Cyber Security Master’s degrees have been recognised as among the best in the country after receiving full certification from the UK Government’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), a part of GCHQ.
With the dramatic increase in high-profile cyber security incidents reported in the media, the demand for highly skilled security professionals is growing significantly as businesses across the globe seek to protect their networks and data. Our MSc Cyber Security with Advanced Practice provides you with a critical understanding of information governance and assurance, combined with technology risk management practices.
The Advanced Practice stage of this programme provides you with the opportunity to undertake a 12-15 week internship, allowing you to put your learning into practice, enhancing your learning and further developing your employability.
This full-time course will be taught by experienced academics at our London Campus, guiding you as you analyse and evaluate the theories, principles and applications associated with cyber security. They will encourage you to question current approaches and processes in the field of information and cyber security. You will be introduced to key theoretical and practical aspects using real world scenarios and case studies and will be expected to investigate new approaches, processes and solutions in this fast-moving environment.
