How are you defining
Hey,

Glad you're considering the University of Hertfordshire to study Cyber Security!

Here are some things you might like to consider when making your choice:

We are proud to be ranked in the top 3 for computer science in the Postgraduate Taught Experience Survey (PTES, Advance HE, 2023)

You will be able to use our state-of-the-art facilities, with our new home for the School of Physics, Engineering and Computer Science opening this year - check it out here

We are accredited by BCS, The Chartered Institute for IT for the purposes of partially meeting the academic requirement for registration as a Chartered IT Professional. This will give you a massive boost when your career begins!


Chat with Mahendra, a postgrad student in the School of Physics, Engineering and Computer Science who will be able to give you a great insight.

It's a really exciting time to be a Cyber Security student at Herts - we hope you join us on this journey!

Hope this helps,

Thanks for reaching out- it's great to hear you're considering Plymouth for our cyber security course (a super interesting field of study!) Here are some great reasons why Plymouth is an ideal choice for a course in cyber security:

New specialist facility- Our recently opened engineering and design facility hosts a part of our array of cutting-edge computer laboratories and state of the art equipment to support you throughout your time at Plymouth.

Your course, tailored to you- Optional modules can be selected throughout the degree to personalise your education and experience to what you are interested in and passionate about. Machine learning, and Digital Forensics & Malware Analysis are just some of the unique modules at Plymouth.

Recognised and accredited- Our computing courses have all been re-accredited by the BCS, the Chartered Institute for IT.

Highly ranked: We ranked 26/106 for student satisfaction in the 2022 National Student Survey. Plymouth is also 6th in the country for best modern UK university for teaching.
