Not required Computing N/A Date of next scheduled accreditation visit External Examiner Institution/Organisation Lancaster University Does the Programme have any approved exemptions from the University General Regulations (Please see General Regulations) Programme Specific Regulations Yes No X (If yes, please state here any exemptions to regulations which have been approved for this programme) Examinations The programme is subject to the University General Regulations which can be found at: caffairs/ Assessment criteria are linked to the learning outcomes for each module. A range of assessment instruments are used including laboratory-based assignments, individual projects, practical exams, presentations, written coursework and unseen written exams. Exam-based assessment is carried out in January and May and marks for the taught modules are finalised at the Board of Examiners meeting in May/June. The pass mark for all taught modules is 50%. Students are normally permitted one further attempt to pass a failed module with the mark used in calculating the final award capped at 50%. Students who, at the first attempt, have failed taught modules to the value of more than 40 CATS points, or who have failed the same module twice, will be referred to the Pastoral Care Committee. The Individual Research Project is assessed in September. Projects may be assessed by the external examiner, and marks finalised at the Board of Examiners meeting in November. The pass mark for the individual research project module is 50% and there is no resit. Progression Students who obtain 120 CATS points in the taught modules are required to undertake an individual security related research project and submit a dissertation in September. The Individual Research Project must be passed at 50% or more for the award of the MSc. All students must have satisfactorily completed all of the required taught modules (120 CATS points) before they will be permitted to begin their Individual Research Project. If students want to defer the submission of their project and submit in December they must inform the Programme Secretary by the first week of the second semester. If they do not follow this time frame they may be charged an additional fee for the project. Students who, at the first attempt, have failed taught modules with a combined value greater than 40 CATS points or who have failed the same module twice will normally not be permitted to proceed to the individual research project and will be required to transfer to the Postgraduate Diploma in Cyber Security. Students who fail one or more taught modules up to the value of 40 2

3 CATS points will only have the opportunity to resit failed modules once at the next available opportunity. Awards Postgraduate Master s awards will be made in accordance with the following mark scale, as set out in the University s Study Regulations for Postgraduate Taught Programmes: 70+ Pass with distinction* 60+ Pass with commendation 50+ Pass Below 50 Fail *For Master s Degrees, a pass with distinction will be awarded only when the following three conditions have been satisfied: an overall average of 70+ is achieved and a mark of 70+ is achieved in the Individual Research Project module and an average of 65+ is achieved in the other modules. Students who fail the Individual Research Project will not be eligible for the MSc award. Students with protected characteristics Students who have failed the Individual Research Project will be considered for the award of Postgraduate Diploma. Normally, students who fail the Individual Research Project will not have the opportunity to resubmit their original project or retake a new project. Students, who have achieved at least 60 CATS points, may opt to be considered for the award of the Postgraduate Certificate. Support For Students And Their Learning Systems Designed to Provide General Pastoral and Academic Guidance: 1.All students are allocated a project supervisor who provides general academic and personal support and encouragement, and advice on pastoral issues. 2.The Course Co-ordinator provides advice and support for 'students at risk' (i.e., those considered to be at risk of failing examinations or who have serious personal, academic or health problems). The Course Co-ordinator will also deal with cases referred by Project Supervisors. 3.A female member of staff is available for consultation by female students. 4.All students have access to the University Health and Counselling Services, Students' Union, University Careers Service and Student Support Services. 5.All students have access to the University Harassment Advisers. 6.Under University Regulations designated procedures are in place to process complaints made by students. Systems Designed to Support Students' Experience of the Learning and Teaching Process 1.An induction programme for new students is held during the first week of Semester 1. 2.All students receive a copy of the handbook for the course. 3.All students have access to the Queen's intranet services which offers: (i) communication with staff. (ii)access to learning and teaching materials (i.e., syllabi, lecture and tutorial outlines and other course materials). (iii)opportunities to participate in discussion with teachers and other students. 4.Students have access to University libraries and Student Computer Centres. 5.Staff/Student Consultative Committee provides a forum for consultation and discussion between staff and students. SCC is convened at least once each semester. 6.Staff will communicate regularly with students during their period of internship to provide support and guidance. 7.Facilities are available within the School and adjacent teaching 3

4 Are students subject to Fitness to Practise Regulations (Please see General Regulations) facilities to aid students with physical disabilities; the School also adheres to University policy concerning the support of students with sensory, learning and physical disabilities. No Fitness to Practise programmes are those which permit students to enter a profession which is itself subject to Fitness to Practise rules 4

5 Educational Aims of Programme The aim of the programme is to offer a multi-disciplinary education in cyber security that prepares graduates with key knowledge, skills and competencies necessary for employment in technical development, cyber risk analysis, managerial positions such as Chief Information Security Officer, or as preparation for further research. On completion of the programme the student will be able to: Comprehensive knowledge and understanding of the fundamental principles of cyber security, which will remain applicable through changes in technology. Advanced knowledge and practical skills in the theory and practice of cyber security.
