I graduated from my BSc Cyber course with a first class degree and successfully got a job in digital forensics as a mobile phone forensic analyst. I found all of the staff to be extremely knowledgeable in the field as well as having their own area of expertise. This meant there were plenty of people on hand to speak to if there was something I was unsure of.

I moved here from the south coast after hearing from prior students about the wealth of knowledge that the lecturers here had. From the beginning, their welcoming nature had allowed me to feel at home on campus and in lectures. If you're not afraid to ask for help; either off campus or on, they'll be able to assist you with almost anything. You'd be surprised how many areas of development these lecturers are skilled in, I certainly was.

The best thing about the course is that we are able to make games, not just write about them and think about them and forget them, but actually make what you want to make. The lecturers are insightful, knowledgeable and fun. They have made the journey and filled it with character.

For anyone who is thinking of studying esports, I would say don’t be worried about what it could be and just come and check it out… I feel the course gives me a lot of advantages with the connections I have made and the experiences I’m gaining. If you genuinely enjoy the industry, you should probably come and study here.
