It's good to challenge yourself

With an undergraduate degree in Computer Science and five years' work experience under her belt, Irene Bundi moved from Kenya to study for a Masters in Cyber Security at LJMU.

I have always had a passion for the security side of computer studies. Everything is moving in that direction these days so it seems like the perfect time to take my studies to the next level.

I chose to study at John Moores as it offered the perfect course for me and I knew a little about the University as my sister took her Masters here. I am really enjoying my course. I find it very interesting and it is great that it builds on what I already know. The academic support is really nice and it is very easy to talk to the lecturers they are not intimidating at all.

Studying alongside recent graduates came as something of a surprise to me at first. At home people tend to work for a few years after they graduate before going on to masters study but it has been good to mix with such a wide variety of people and hear about their experiences.

I would certainly recommend postgraduate study at LJMU to my friends back home. Sure, studying overseas is different and it is a change but change is a positive thing and it's good to challenge yourself.
