Visit the official programme website for more information


Cyber Security at Keele University prepares you to fully participate in the development of secure internet and web-based systems, and to apply an expert approach to the management and control of such activities, identifying risks, safety and security aspects that may be involved in the deployment of computing systems.

Even if your first degree is in a subject other than Computing, you’ll learn how to master techniques to implement secure IT solutions, which are among the most sought-after skills in industry and business.


It has been estimated that there are up to 3.5 million unfulfilled cybersecurity jobs across the world – a number that has increased by a phenomenal 350% between 2013 and 2021 – so the demand for cyber professionals is not set to slow any time soon.

The threat of ransomware attacks, data breacher or major IT outage concerns companies more than business and supply chain disruption, natural disasters or the Covid-19 pandemic, according to the Allianz Risk Barometer 2022, an annual survey identifying the top corporate risks for the upcoming year and beyond.
