This four-year extended degree includes a foundation year (Year 0) that provides the background necessary for entry on to one of our digital forensics or cyber security based BSc (Hons) courses, and is aimed at those who have little or no subject background. The course is also suitable if you wish to change your subject area or if your secondary level grades have not matched your expectations. 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.
