CyberFirst

The UK needs young people to train as a new generation of cyber security specialists, joining a network of diverse tech and non-tech experts who’ll come together to protect our digital world.

That’s why the CyberFirst university bursary and degree apprenticeship offer two career paths for students and school-leavers.

  • CyberFirst University Bursary

    The CyberFirst university bursary offers students £4,000 per university year, tax free, plus paid work experience or academy training every summer with government bodies and industry brands.
