Programme Notes:

  • Optional Modules: Not all options may be available in any particular year. Some option combinations are only available if the timetable permits. As students may have to make preliminary option choices before timetables are available, changes may be needed later if there are clashes. In selecting options, students need to pay attention to pre- and co-requisites.
  • Programme Approval: Students' individual programmes of study must be approved by the Programme Director (as the nominee of the Head of School).
  • Project: Project topics must be on a Cyber Security topic and will require approval by the Programme Director as being appropriate to the Aims and Learning Outcomes of the programme.
