Looking to build on your computing-based degree as a cyber-security professional? Need to deepen your understanding in this area to take your career to the next level? With a postgraduate degree in cyber security from UWE Bristol, you’ll be perfectly positioned, whatever your ambition.

You’ll build on your existing computing knowledge and study complex systems- ranging from low-level software vulnerabilities and weaknesses in encryption schemes, to information risk management issues and research challenges in cyber security. Giving you the technical expertise and critical reasoning skills you’ll need to tackle today’s technological challenges.

You’ll join a growing community of active learners ranging from full-time students to those already working in businesses, such as the MOD and GCHQ, where cyber security has been identified as a critical area for investment.

Learn from dedicated, research-active staff 

You’ll learn from dedicated, research-active staff in a centre recognised by the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) as a gold-awarded Academic Centre for Excellence in Cyber Security Education (ACE-CSE). We’re one of only seven gold ACE-CSEs in the UK, and the only one in the South West region. From the teaching and the research, to the opportunities available, you won’t find a better place in the region to learn or develop in this area.

Take advantage of the industry connections we have with opportunities to attend field trips, take part in inter-university competitions and attend major conferences. And hear from a range of industry experts who are regularly invited in to talk to our students.

Whether you’re new to cyber security or looking to deepen your existing knowledge, you’ll graduate well-prepared for a range of diverse and rewarding roles within this field of work.  So whatever your ambition, you’ll be in the right place to make it happen.
