"Cyber Skills Africa" an initiative of ICSI, UK (International CyberSecurity Institute) is aimed at filling the Cybersecurity Skills Gap in Nigeria and Africa by supporting the future of cybersecurity education at an affordable cost. Cybersecurity scholarships *(UP to 70%) help students to achieve their education and career goals.
ICSI bridges the gap between theory and practice by taking a more empirical approach to learning and emphasizing hands-on training that simulate real-life scenarios. Although a university programme in IT provides in- depth theoretical knowledge, the academic nature of degree courses often fails to deliver practical skills.
ICSI has developed an online six-level certification program aimed at advancing technical professionals in their skills and knowledge of today’s modern cybersecurity landscape. The program focuses on a range of training—from basic introductory knowledge, to mastery of today’s modern cybersecurity concepts. The five-level certification program will provide students the hands-on training they need to enter the job market.
Cyber Skills Scholarships are available for the following certifications and academic degree:
