The UK Government’s National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) certify only the highest level of cyber security courses in the country. This makes Northumbria University amongst a select group of providers to have courses recognised in this way.
Northumbria University, London, is already a Centre of Excellence in Cyber Security Research (ACEs-CSR), with the NCSC certification recognising the top-level standard of teaching at the university.
Guy Brown, Director of Northumbria’s London campus, said: “Northumbria University London Campus has a strong track record in both research and teaching in the areas of Cyber Security, Cyber Technology and wider Information Security Management.
“This programme certification from the National Cyber Security Centre reflects our commitment to this subject area, our research and practitioner informed curriculum, the fantastic campus resources and our wider activity in this rapidly emerging area.
“Cyber security is an incredibly fast-moving sector and as well as teaching our students the skills they need today we’re also futureproofing them for tomorrow.”
The NCSC certification applies to the following courses:
