Computing and Cybersecurity

As a student of our School of Computing and Cybersecurity, you’ll benefit from learning in industry-standard, state-of-the-art facilities at our brand new City Campus Manchester.

Our goal is to help you to secure employment or that much sought-after promotion when you graduate, which means you can expect to be treated as an individual, rather than a number. Our tutors will get to know you and ensure you receive the help you need to succeed. So, if you want to benefit from smaller class sizes and one-to-one support when it’s needed, look no further.  Everything is a little more personal here and don’t be surprised if your fellow students are keen to lend a helping hand as well – we’re all in it together.

Our links with industry partners are another thing you’ll benefit from – you can look forward to work experience opportunities and the chance to network and build your contacts.
