    Cyber Security Postgraduate Bursaries Scheme

    The School is participating in The Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport’s (DCMS) postgraduate bursaries initiative to help adults retrain for a career in cyber security by taking a National Cyber Security Centre certified masters 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 cover students starting in academic year 18/19 and cover tuition fees only. There is a strong focus on encouraging more women in to the sector to address the current under-representation in the cyber security workforce. This reflected in the criteria set out below. 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 will apply the relevant Masters Loan residency and nationality requirements of their national equivalent.
    • Have 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.

    When deciding on bursary allocation all participating institutions will take into account the strength of the original application for those accepted onto the course and give additional weighting to applications from women applying for the bursary.
