Hello. I am looking for a nice MSc in the specified field. The universities that have been suggested to me, are the following ones:
1)Southampton (Cyber Security)
2)Birmingham (Cyber Security)
3)Royal Holloway (Information Security)
4)Bristol (but I could not find an MSc in the field of security)
and last but not least the University of Portsmouth(which is so-so as I have heard for the following MSc, Computer Information and Security).
I would like to know if you could help me sort them out in an order of better to worst. Thank you very much and I am looking forward to your answers.
MSc in Information Security, Cyber Security Watch

I have already done that, but I need to know more about the opportunities that one can have from each and everyone of these MScs. I was hoping that postgraduate students could enlighten me more in that matter.

I am doing the MSc in Cyber Security at the Uni of York and it is GCHQ accredited. It has a lot of practical sessions in network security, cryptography, forensics, malware, intrusion detection, pertest-vulnerability assessment etc.
I have to say my security skills were entry level when I went there, the MSc was demanding and I have learned a lot of things since then. One of the reasons I chose it was the practical sessions. For example in our forensics course we were given laptops to take home and work on the practical assessment we had. We also had a practical session in malware analysis, where we worked on static and dynamic analysis techniques.
I have to say though that you need to have good programming and networking background.
About the other MSc courses I have heard that RHUL has around 150-170 students every year and doesn't offer lots of practical sessions, however it has a great reputation.
