Course summary

If you don't have the right grades to enrol directly onto our BSc (Hons) Computer Security degree, this BCS-accredited course offers an alternative route with an additional foundation year. This extra introductory year will give you the grounding you need to begin degree-level study. The foundation year focuses on the study of computing and mathematics in order to provide a good numerical background that will support you throughout the remainder of the degree.The BSc (Hons) Computer Security degree has a practical emphasis to prepare you for a career in computer security. You’ll understand how computer systems are designed and secured, and learn how to protect them against all kinds of attacks. Your studies will cover effective computer systems management and how to complete an effective IT health check. You will also have the opportunity to achieve CompTIA Security+ certification as part of your studies. The University is also recognised as a Centre of Excellence for information security and computer forensics by the National Police Chiefs Council. This Computer Security degree is based at our Treforest campus. USW Treforest is surrounded by green open spaces. Our students say they love the warm and friendly welcome and community atmosphere, as well as the convenience of living and studying in the same place. From listed buildings to new, modern structures, Treforest reflects the University’s history and its ambitions. Here you will find everything you need in one place - halls of residence, the library and sport centre, cafes and bars to eat and drink, and friends to spend time with.
