The CyberFirst programme has been developed to encourage and support students interested in pursuing a career in cybersecurity.

CyberFirst covers a broad range of activities and provides opportunities to 11-17-year-olds to explore their passion for cybersecurity.  The programme includes a comprehensive bursary scheme to financially support undergraduates through university and a degree apprenticeship scheme; a girls' only competition and thousands of free places on CyberFirst courses at UK universities and colleges.

There's even Cyber Discovery, an online extracurricular programme in which each activity is designed to seek out people with potential, offering the support, skills, experience and exposure needed to be the future first line of defence in our CyberFirst world.
