I annot help you with the UK and Canada but many information security programs have online curriculi.

The Masters program in INFOSEC at JMU has students in England Germany and Japan.

http://www.infosec.jmu.edu/

It is nationally recognized and is one of the older programs in the US.

Another well known one is the CERIAS program at Perdue, also in the US.

But if you want UK only, try googling 'information security masters site:.uk' (or site:.ca for Canada).

Hi-

I mentioned the JMU program because you do not need to be either a US citizen or at the school to participate. I had a class that teamed me with a partner in cambridge, and it was successful.

if you are interested in Information Security, and you are looking at US schools, you should probably look at schools that have been acknowledged by the NSA (National Security Agency) as Centers for Academic Excelence. I cannot speak for the UK or Canada.

But look at what that means: http://www.nsa.gov/ia/academia/caeiae.cfm
Ans the acreddited schools: http://www.nsa.gov/ia/academia/caemap.cfm?MenuID=10.1.1.2

Royal Hollaway in the UK is pretty well respected:

They always have stands at Infosec, their professors go to all the right industry meetings, so you should have no problem getting potential employers to recognise your bit of paper once you've finished.

A universally accepted Security certificate is the CISSP, "ICS squared" offers courses all over the world
https://www.isc2.org/cgi/content.cgi?category=19
However the certificate is more universal, as it is not limited to M$ products.
The MCSE and MCSA certificates are M$ centric, http://www.microsoft.com/learning/mcp/mcse/security/windowsserver2003.asp
You may search for courses/class's based on those.

hey richrumble i dont want to do certifications , i want to do MS in information from any world top 10 university.
Tim HolmanCommented:
A CISSP is a professional qualification that would touch on a lot of what an MSc in IS would do.
It may be worth covering this off to see whether or not you fancy doing the MSc, as they're pretty hardcore...
