Hi Divin,

I am currently a 2nd year student studying Psychology here at Surrey. Did you complete your undergraduate degree here or at another uni and what did you study?

My boyfriend has just completed his masters here at Surrey studying Cyber Security, I understand its a different masters however I can try and find out more information about what a masters is like and also see if there is anything helpful he may be able to advise

Becca.

It would be very helpful if you can get me some information. I have completed my undergraduate degree (Electronics Engineering) from India, so my Masters is going to be a totally new experience. I did get a lot of information from the staff at the University of Surrey, but I would definitely like to hear from students. The placement route of the course has been suspended by the University, so how difficult it would it be to find a job in cybersecurity
Could you please ask him if it’s difficult for people without security clearance to find a job in Cybersecurity?

Hi Divin,
I have spoken to my boyfriend and has provided this to me to pass onto you

"I am a recent Masters graduate from the University of Surrey. I studied Criminology which specialised in cybercrime and cybersecurity. I took two modules related to information security, so hopefully I can be of some help. Although placements are understandingly suspended, this will not affect the likelihood of finding a job after graduating. The most important thing to show employers is that you can demonstrate relevant knowledge and skills related to the role you are applying for. This will normally need to be demonstrated in the job interview.

A lack of placement experience shouldn't be a concern too, as other students are in the same situation as you due to the pandemic. In relation to your concerns about security clearance, this stage only applies when the employer believes you will be a good fit for them. Therefore, not having the necessary clearance for the role will not limit your career opportunities as the employer will arrange you to be cleared if they want to hire you.

I hope this helps with your query, but if you have any other questions please let me know"

I hope this has been helpful! please let me know if there is anything else you would like to know

Becca (2nd year Psychology Student)
