About this program
Professional Practice in Digital Forensics and Security MSc
The full MSc course consists of eight modules (at 15 credits each) and an MSc Project/Dissertation (at 60 credits). Seven of the taught modules are delivered and assessed jointly by De Montfort University staff and 7Safe trainers with the eighth being a stand alone distance learning module that DMU is responsible for. The Project/Dissertation is delivered and assessed by DMU alone. Successful completion of the MSc gives students seven industry recognised professional certificates and the MSc.
Most students embark on their MSc after successfully completing one or more 7Safe courses. On successful completion of the 7Safe hands-on training course, you are then eligible to apply to DMU for an academic top-up/assessment by distance learning. Taking the course in this way is normally a part-time pathway and you should expect to study for two-three years. However, you can register directly with DMU for the full degree and the university then manages your attendance and progression through the relevant 7Safe modules and academic assessments. Registering with DMU direct can therefore provide a full-time route through the course.
You should have the equivalent of a British Honours degree (2:2 minimum) in a relevant subject or five years’ work experience in an appropriate field.
We are happy to consider equivalent qualifications from anywhere in the world.
If English is not your first language an IELTS score of 6.0 or equivalent when you start the course is essential. English Language tuition, delivered by our British Council accredited Centre for English Language Learning, is available both before and throughout the course if you need it.
If you do not have the normal entry requirements but can demonstrate substantial experience in an appropriate area, you can be considered for entry to the course.
