Study cyber security on a fully funded Chevening Scholarship
It’s no secret that jobs in cyber security are in high demand. That’s just one of the reasons to choose to study cyber security on a fully funded Chevening Scholarship. We talk to Shumaila Khan, a Chevening Scholar from Pakistan.
If you’re interested in technology, I firmly encourage you to study cyber security at a UK university. Cybercrime is on the rise, which is resulting in increased demand for skilled labour in this area.
Gain a quality education and become a cyber security specialist, and you’ll never be out of work.
I studied cyber security at King’s College London. I’ve gathered in-depth knowledge of:
- Secure software development
- Robust security testing
- The UK’s legal framework for cybercrime
I intend to use the skills and knowledge I’ve gained as a basis for future work in my home country.
Pakistan has minimal legislation around cybercrime, so it’s my ambition to implement a Legislation and Regulatory framework. Current investigative tools into cybercrime in Pakistan fail to meet industry standard, and there is minimal training into cyber security.
I’m looking forward to using the skills, knowledge, and networks I’ve gained during my Chevening experience so far to tackle cybercrime in Pakistan.
If you’re interested in technology, apply for a fully funded Chevening Scholarship to study cyber security at a UK university.
