Hear from our students

"Since doing myMasters at Northumbria, I have been able to apply a lot of knowledge into mywork. I have always done my work in a certain way, but after doing a couple ofmodules on the programme, it has somehow made me ask more questions and go morein-depth in terms of technical aspects for the Cyber Security side, as well asthe Governance and Assurance side of Information Security.”

“Cyber Security is a never-ending game; it’s about finding something new and working with it. Having a Masters degree can help you through all of these challenges in a systematic and methodical way. It will definitely be advantageous to you, whether that be looking for a job yourself, or interviewing other people."

"Not having a Bachelor’s degree, the entry from vocational qualifications and experience also suited me. Since I started the course I have been promoted. The differences between pure academic and pure industry approaches to the subject mean I can take away a novel set of skills that I hope to apply daily in my job."

“Moving risk management into every aspect of my work has proved productive and helps gain trust and buy-in from management. I hope to review all aspects of what I have learnt and keep this structured approach alive throughout my Cyber Security career."
