CYBER SECURITY DEGREES

Our cyber security courses will equip you for the wide variety of exciting and important careers available in this field, and cover bleeding edge technologies such as mobile forensics, ethical hacking and big data. Taught by experts in their field, you can be confident knowing you will be supported throughout your studies. USW has been named Cyber University of the Year for three consecutive years at the National Cyber Awards 2021, 2020 and 2019.

Many of our computing degrees are fully accredited by the BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT. Some employers recruit preferentially from accredited degrees, and an accredited computing degree is likely to be internationally recognised. 

Depending on your course, you will be trained to a sufficient level to enable you to take industry standard qualifications alongside your studies, such as Cisco Cyber Ops (Cyber Academy), CompTIA Security+ and Access Data’s Forensic Toolkit Certified Examiner.

LOCATIONS

The places you study and live make a big difference to what you get out of university. It’s important to be somewhere that feels like home, but can also surprise you. South Wales offers rich experiences, with Cardiff at the heart.

With campuses in and around Cardiff, you can experience the diversity that south Wales has to offer – the buzz of the cities, the beauty of the coast, and the calm of the countryside. 

We have five campuses across three locations, but we’re one university. Every campus is open to you and whatever inspires you, you’re always welcome.
