RequirementsThe eligibility criteria for application include different documents.

  • A nationally-recognised bachelor’s degree (corresponding to at least 180 ECTS) or a master’s degree (corresponding to at least 240 ECTS) with a major in computer science or computer engineering. Evidence of being ranked in the top 10% of your class (corresponding to A in the ECTS grading scale) through an institutional document must be provided.
  • Alternately, exceptional five-years’ professional experience minimum, corresponding to at least 180 ECTS, in cybersecurity-related activities will be accepted in order to recognise un-certificated Prior Learning (RPL) and allow for exceptional atypical profiles. This is done on a case-by-case basis.
  • Proficiency in English measured by international tests, e.g., Cambridge General English FCE, IELTS (Academic) 5.5, TOEFL (paper based) 570, TOEFL (computer based) 230, TOEFL (internet based) 72. Applicants will submit standardised English/instruction language test scores.


Students who have not yet completed their degree can also apply but must provide academic transcripts to date.  Offers of a place in the programme will be conditional pending receipt of the final degree result.
