The doctorate comprises four core modules which make up Part 1:· Information Technology and Internet Law · Research Preparation and Planning · Seizure and Examination of Computer Systems· Understanding the Research Process and Context. In addition, you will be required to complete a 40,000-word thesis as Part 2 of the doctorate.
The doctorate provides opportunities to develop specialist skills and leadership capacities. It is expected that the programme will considerably enhance your career pathways within information security.
The IT and Internet Law module provides a background to governance of the technology and the humans who use it, whilst Seizure and Examination of Computer Systems provides a response platform for situations where potentially a crime has been committed.
Applied Research Tools and Techniques provides a sophisticated toolset of research techniques and Research Methods for Technologists provides highly specialised approaches.
Three modules are tailored to the students workplace with their research-based learning: Work-based Planning, Work-based Practice and Project Portfolio. The Research Conference module is designed to encourage more reflective, innovative ways of presenting research findings and responding to feedback.

Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).
Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.
All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
Good master´s degree (or equivalent) and three years´ professional experience. Applicants without these qualifications will be assessed on a case-by-case basis in the light of their professional and academic experience
