[+] A Message from the Course Director

Launched in 1992, Royal Holloway's MSc Information Security was the first of its kind in the world. Since then, the number of degree programmes has grown rapidly, concentrating either on academic research or specific topics such as forensics. From the start, the Royal Holloway programme has covered the entire breadth of the subject: from the management of security, to computer crime, to cryptographic mechanisms and how they are used in the protection of computers and their networks.

Given our strength in depth across the programme and the active contribution of security professionals to its continuing review and development, we are uniquely well placed to maintain the programme's relevance within a fast-moving industry.

The content of the distance learning MSc, launched in 2003, is identical to that for campus-based students at Royal Holloway. Delivered online, you are fully supported by a Virtual Learning Environment through which you can interact with tutors and fellow students worldwide. We look forward to welcoming you to our online security community.
