Fancy getting a master’s degree in cyber spying? Look no further.
Six universities have been accredited by intelligence agency GCHQ to teach cyber security.
The universities that will offer a master’s degree in cyber security include Edinburgh Napier University, Lancaster University, the University of Oxford and Royal Holloway, University of London.
Cabinet Office minister Francis Maude said the courses would help to make the “UK one of the safest places in the world to do business online”.
He said: “Through the excellent work of GCHQ, in partnership with other government departments, the private sector and academia, we are able to counter threats and ensure together we are stronger and more aware.
Cranfield University’s cyber defence and information assurance course, and the University of Surrey’s information security course have also been given provisional accreditations.
A spokesman for GCHQ said the universities “were judged to provide well-defined and appropriate content, delivered to the highest standard”.
