Introduction

Terrorists and cybercriminals are a growing and constant menace to world security.

Learn how to fight this threat on the international stage as you study in the UK and Australia on this Counter Terrorism, Intelligence and Cybercrime dual degree.

You'll develop the skills, knowledge and tech know-how to help protect communities, businesses and government organisations from terrorism and cybercrime. In year 3, you'll experience how Australian authorities deal with these threats when you spend a year studying at Edith Cowan University (ECU) in Perth, Australia.

Course highlights

  • Graduate with 2 degrees – a BSc Cybercrime, Security and Intelligence from ECU alongside a BSc (Hons) Counter Terrorism, Intelligence and Cybercrime from the University of Portsmouth
  • Study with academics whose research in areas such as incel culture and the security of smart devices are shaping the future of the sector

  • Learn from staff who have worked as intelligence analysts, investigators and police officers
  • Enhance your career prospects by building a professional network in the UK and Australia during your course

Advantages of dual degrees

This course is a dual degree (also known as a double degree).

When you complete the course successfully, you'll have 2 degrees:

  • BSc (Hons) Counter Terrorism, Intelligence and Cybercrime from University of Portsmouth
  • BSc Cybercrime, Security and Intelligence from Edith Cowan University

Dual degrees allow you to achieve 2 degrees in 3.5 or 4 years rather than 6 years.

You'll benefit from a global education experience and the high-calibre teaching expertise, latest research and modern facilities at 2 universities. You'll also develop a more comprehensive knowledge of counter terrorism, intelligence and cybercrime than on a single degree and gain an understanding of different cultures, which will help you work more effectively with people from different backgrounds.

All of this will help you stand out in a competitive job market after you graduate.
