Student Profile(s)

Marcel Fehr

Swiss graduate Marcel Fehr is already established in the field of information security. He’s lived in Australia and has a wealth of life experience.

Yet, twenty years after completing his Bachelor’s degree in Switzerland, he returned to study, taking up the distance-learning MSc in Information Security offered by Royal Holloway, University of London.

“My main motivation was to do an English-language degree from England and also to achieve a well-known academic degree – that's what Royal Holloway is famous for,” he says.

“They've got excellence in cyber-security from GCHQ.

“I finally thought – I want to keep my language skills, I want to do an English degree. And Royal Holloway offered it all. It was the perfect match for me.”
