Why study cyber security on a fully funded Chevening Scholarship?

Advances in technology are changing the way we live, work and play. But as technological advances accelerate, so too does the need for cyber security experts.

We hear from two Chevening Scholars, Fatou and Emmanuel, about why they chose to study cyber security at National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) accredited UK universities.

The key takeaways:

  1. There are millions of job vacancies in cyber security due to the rise of cyber security attacks and the shortage of cyber security experts.
  2. Studying in the UK provides the opportunity to train alongside top industry practitioners.
  3. You’ll also meet a diverse range of people, providing deeper and more enriched perspectives.
  4. UK universities may also be able to provide you with networking opportunities to meet with cyber security experts.
