Postgraduate Certificate in Cyber Security

The University of Liverpool Postgraduate Certificate in Cyber Security programme is designed for professionals aiming to enhance their specialist cyber security knowledge and strengthen their status as cyber security experts.

Both educational qualifications and work experience are considered when you apply to the University.

In general, you will be expected to have the following:

  • A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university, or a degree from a recognised institution comparable or equivalent to a British honours degree.
  • Two years’ relevant professional IT experience.

If you have a professional IT background, rather than a bachelor’s degree, you will need:

  • At least three years’ experience for holders of the equivalent of an HNC/HND (or two years’ certified HE).
  • At least five years’ experience for holders of the equivalent of GCE A-levels or an ONC/OND.
  • At least 10 years of experience otherwise.

English proficiency

If English is not your native language, you will need to demonstrate English proficiency comparable to IELTS 6.5, TEEP 6.5, TOEFL 600, or GCSE C.
