Summary

In a world with more smart devices than people and an increasing reliance on connectivity across the Internet, cyber threats are a growing concern for organisations, governments and individuals. Acquiring skills in Cyber Security has, therefore, become an advantage for a range of professions and roles across different sectors and disciplines.

Overview The Computer Science (Cyber Security) conversion course will give you the opportunity to establish a foundation in cyber security from technical and multidisciplinary perspectives. This is a conversion course intended for graduates with little or no prior knowledge of computer science. For those with prior knowledge of computer science, see our specialist MSc Cyber Security course.

Cybercrime is a growing threat to society, democracy and organisations with increasing high profile cyber security cases in the news. This conversion course has been designed to meet the demands of organisations seeking to protect valuable data. This course will provide you with the key skills and knowledge in computer science and systems security to enhance your career prospects in identifying and solving complex security problems.

The University of Kent is recognised by the British Government as being an Academic Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research, meaning you will be taught by staff who are top researchers in this area.

This programme is available with an optional industrial placement of between eight and 50 weeks. The industrial placement provides an opportunity to work in real-world, technical, and business roles, enhancing your study experience and having a dramatic impact on your choices after graduation.
