Computer Forensics Courses in Clearing

Following on from another predicted record rise in A level results there is now the predictable scramble for places at University, through clearing;  for those who didn’t quite  make the grades required or want to change subjects.

Computer Forensics appears to be, once again, a popular choice for students.Below are the degrees  currently available through clearing (listed by UCAS) .

Computer Forensics is an interesting area to work in, and people should be encouraged into the subject, but by the best route.The words of advice offered for those applying through clearing to computer forensics courses are this:

  • Not all universities are equal (despite the fantastic marketing and government assertions to the contrary). Employers, the people who pay graduates wages, know which Universities are good and which are not, and its their opinions which count.  It doesn’t matter if the University of West Scarborough has a fantastic course in the metaphysics of comedy, employers (well paying ones) would rather a graduate from Oxford or Cambridge (right or wrong its just one of those things).
  • University Computer Forensics courses are not all what they say they are. Take a look at some interview examples to see for yourself.
  • University will cost around 23,000 (GBP) per student for three years, to end up with a degree that may not be valued. Also, in three years time there will be three more years of graduates who have left University. That’s thousands more people who have already got a job in the very small industry of computer forensics, how many graduates can the industry take?
  • Conversely for 3,000 (GBP) a person can enroll in an EnCase Passport course with as much training as they like for 18 months. Professional training with a professional qualification for three grand!
  • Despite all that a good degree from a good university is worth having.
