Jaime Ibarra Jimenez

I knew which area of technology I was interested in, [so] when I spoke to the team, they explained the Cyber Security Course to me, I found it very interesting. After that conversation I decided to take the opportunity and move to London.

I was very supported during my time here. It's nice that there's not a big class size either. I think we had around 9-10 people in our class and that meant that the lecturers could be more focused on us individually as well as creating a more relaxed environment.

MSc Cyber Security has really opened my mind. Before I assumed that if you worked in the industry you just stayed behing a computer and carried out some penetration testing. However, now I understand that there's a lot more to cyber security than what I first thought and that's all thanks to my lecturers who were able to expand my mind and show me what the industry is all about.
