Royal Holloway won the award for the best Cyber Security Education Programme in Europe, by SC Awards 2017.
Royal Holloway has been recognised as a world-leading interdisciplinary research group committed to research and education in information security and computer science.
Royal Holloway's BSc Computer Science programme is also the first degree programme that has a GCHQ certificate in the UK.

Professor Paul Hogg, Vice-Principal and Dean of Science, said that they were very thrilled to be the first university in the UK to have a programme certificated by GCHQ.
