A career in IT security is fast-paced and highly dynamic, and cyber security training is vital for those who are looking to progress. Cloud technologies are evolving faster than cloud security, creating a huge skills gap for those with specialist security knowledge. And with over 70% of organisations experiencing a cloud breach in the last year, it’s more important than ever to retrain and reskill.
We rank No.1 in the UK for Teaching Quality and Student Experience in Computer Science*, so there’s nowhere better to embark on your professional development. If you’re a graduate with a relevant degree, here are some ways you can enjoy self-improvement with Postgraduate study.
Always be ready to evolve
Enrolling for the MSc Cloud and Network Security course at the University of Bolton in Greater Manchester is a great way to develop your skills. Our course leaders provide a supportive and friendly learning environment so students continue to evolve, and ensure modules are up-to-date so you get the most advanced education possible.
Cloud security is constantly changing, so IT security graduates must be ready to adapt when they enter employment. Our course not only prepares you for a reactive role by arming you with transferable skills, but our dedicated Employability Team will be on hand to support your career ambitions.
Make the most of live projects
On our master’s programme, you will get to work on different live projects, created in partnership with our impressive business network. We work with a number of industry partners, giving you a chance to gain hands-on experience in cloud security issues.
It’s important to make the most of these projects, learning as much as you can, as these modules will give you the self-improvement skills you need for real workplace settings.
Learn from your peers
Another benefit of Postgraduate study is being able to join a vibrant student community, often consisting of students and professionals from all backgrounds. This gives you a unique opportunity to study alongside talented IT leaders of the future. As well as having a support group to share ideas with, you’ll also be able to build your professional network.
This is why it’s vital to attend networking events and to learn as much from your peers during your studies.
