As the world expands its use of communication technology and information-based applications, the need to respond to more threats from illegal or unwanted activities has exponentially increased.
Located in Preston, UCLan’s main campus has an international community of over 38,000 students and staff and is home to the University’s School of Psychology and Computer Science.
Upon completing one of NCC Education’s validated online top-ups in BSc (Hons) Business Computing Information Systems or BSc (Hons) Cyber Security and Networking, graduates now have the opportunity to progress to master’s study on-campus at UCLan with the MSc in IT Security.
With excellent facilities including a 24/7 library and CISCO Networks Laboratories, students will study a range of core and optional units, including a substantial IT Security-related project. Students may also be able to extend their study time in Preston through an industrial placement or industry-related project.
As UCLan alumni, NCC Education’s BSc (Hons) graduates who apply to the MSc in IT Security will benefit from a scholarship of £2,000 as well as an International Bursary of £1,000. Students who gain exceptional grades may be eligible for UCLan’s Excellence Scholarship of an additional £1,000*. At present the fee for full time international students – without scholarships or bursaries applied – is £14,500 per year.
Head of Partnerships at NCC Education, Dermot Finnigan, says: “NCC Education has been offering validated online top-up degrees in partnership with UCLan since 2013. We are delighted to hear that UCLan top-up graduates looking to study at Master’s level in the UK can now take advantage of this generous offer.”
*MSc IT Security scholarships are awarded by the university on a case-by-case basis; applicants must achieve a 2:2 degree or above and hold an IELTs or acceptable equivalent of 6.5, with no band lower than 6.0.
