The Academy of Cyber Security is a 16-week immersive course. Students receive 400 hours of instructor-led tuition (25 hours a week) alongside 200 hours of guided self-study (12.5 hours a week).
The course is delivered entirely online using remote education technology and the virtual classroom. Lessons are interactive, delivered live, and regularly include team-based learning projects.
You will learn alongside your class peers and the quality of tuition is as high as you would expect in a physical classroom.
The course and curriculum was designed by an expert team consisting of academic experts, leading cyber security professionals, and cyber security employers.
The curriculum has been developed around five threshold concepts;
As a learner, you will undertake a journey of solving cyber security problems as part of your team. The problems become more complex the further into the course you go. This isn’t a module-based course, it’s an organic journey where the cyber security workplace is closely replicated.
This methodology also directly develops a wide range of vital soft skills. These include communication, problem-solving, team work, report writing, strategy development, and many more.
Graduates of the Academy will obtain three highly recognised cyber security certifications. These will include;
All exams are provisioned online and costs covered by the Academy.
These certifications were chosen based on employer feedback and labour market research.
The curriculum is not built around these certifications. Learners will be able to pass and study for these certifications as a by-product of the main 16-week curriculum.
The curriculum is mapped against NIST NICE, GCHQ, and the Charted Institute of Information Security Professionals (CIISec) frameworks. It is also the equivalent of a PGCert in Cyber Security (600 credits).
The course is expected to be accredited by GCHQ and acknowledged by CIISec.
We are exploring partnerships with universities to realise the PGCert equivalence status.
