You can work alongside researchers in our Centre for Secure, Intelligent and Usable Systems (CSIUS) to develop your research skills and be part of projects relevant to the latest research and challenges in information security.
You will learn through a combination of lectures, tutorials and workshops – both student-led and practical sessions. All modules have research-driven content and use a carefully selected mix of teaching methods and assessment to support you and help guide your independent learning.
