The MSc Information Security (Cyber Pathway) is a Provisionally NCSC (GCHQ) Certified Master's degree and, as such, is a recipient of the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS) bursary scheme.

The DCMS offers postgraduate bursaries to help adults retrain for a career in cyber security by taking a NCSC certified degree. This initiative is supported by the National Cyber Security Programme - the Government's £1.9 billion investment to significantly transform the UK's cyber security.

The bursary funding will apply to the students starting in academic year 2018/19 (both September and January intake) and there is a strong focus on encouraging more women in to the sector to address the current under-representation in the cyber security workforce. All applicants accepted on the course may be considered for the Award, provided they meet the eligibility criteria - there is no separate application process for the DCMS bursary. If awarded, it covers all or parts of the programme tuition fee.

Eligible students will be selected by the University and must meet the following essential criteria:

  • Be undertaking the course specified above and not undertaking any other forms of formal education.
  • Not previously held employment as a cyber security professional (cyber security was not a significant part of any previous job function - i.e. less than 50% of a previous job role).
  • Must meet the nationality and residency requirements in the Masters Loan England eligibility criteria. Universities in Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland should use the relevant Masters Loan residency and nationality requirements of their national equivalent.
  • Subject to a criminal record check provision.
  • Has not previously been awarded a bursary under the DCMS Cyber Security Postgraduate Bursaries Scheme

In addition, candidates must:

  • Demonstrate a clear and credible intention to become a cyber security professional in the UK, and how the bursary materially assists achieve that.

Please note that the bursary allocation preference guidance will:

  • Take into account the strength of the original application for those accepted onto the course.
  • Give additional scoring weighting to women applying for the programme. This is in line with the Scheme focus of helping address underrepresentation of women in the cyber security profession.
