    Hi all!

    I'm interested in doing cyber security as of 2017. My confirmed grades are as follows:

    Extended Diploma in IT (Dist*, Dist*, Dist*)
    A Level in Maths with Technical Baccalaureate in IT (C, C)
    11 GCSEs A* - C (mostly Bs) incl. English, Maths, Science, Computing & IT.

    I have a deferred place at Newcastle to study BSc Computer Science (Security and Resillience), which is on hold because I currently have a job in IT for some experience.

    I've been looking at the possibility of going to Royal Holloway, University of London to study BSc/MSci Information Security.

    I was wondering if you guys had any idea as to what would be the best of these two options, or if anywhere else would be better for me?

    I'm mainly interested in the course, the teaching and the facilities being as good as possible! A good student life would be great, but it's not important.

    Any help would be hugely appreciated!

    University of Wolverhampton or University of Chester offer Cybersecurity, both have decent student life and are very close to either Birmingham, Manchester or Liverpool. Maybe check them out?
