Work-related learning

Translating your academic studies into essential professional experience

Practical, hands-on experience to boost your employability is incorporated into this programme wherever possible. However the best way to really get a taste of working in the cyber security industry or the IT industry in general is to take a year out after your second year and spend 12 months on supervised work placement. This invaluable experience gives you a chance to put into practice the many concepts and techniques you have learnt on the course, as well as developing new skills. We highly recommend that you take up this opportunity, as it will greatly enhance your prospects when you come to negotiate your way around the competitive graduate job market.

Our teaching is supported by high quality research and collaboration with 450 local and national companies such as Corus, Unilever, Sony Computer Entertainment Europe, IBM, Eutechnyx, Jagex, Spiral House, Heinz, Liverpool Direct, Pilkington, MBNA Bank, HM Treasury, Lloyds TSB, Merseyside Police, Thames Water Authority, AstraZeneca, Littlewoods, Vauxhall Motors, GlaxoSmithKline to name but a few. This means that our computing courses are designed and developed to meet the needs of employers today, as well as creating excellent work placements for students.
