Want to do a Cyber Security degree, but I don't know anything about computing?


I am from the UK and this year I will be finishing my A Levels (which are Psychology, ICT, and Business Studies), I'm predicted average grades of BBB.

I am really interested in the world of Cyber Security, but I know little to nothing about computing, in ICT we just learn about computers and networks, nothing like coding.

Will this be an issue if I wanted to do a Cyber Security degree at university?

I've been looking at Oxford Brookes.

Thanks a lot!

    I looked them up. I suggest you do the same and ask them.

    Without understanding the coding you will probably be restricted as to how high up you can rise in the field. You will be restricted to using existing software.

    Not knowing anything about comptures will make it much harder to learn. Start learning what you can now.
