Otherwise, the rest of the coursework can be done at your own pace, and if you have experience (and CISSP), it's very doable. I understand that the program is rigorous, so if a student lacks motivation, the program may take 2-3 years.

    I was able to get into the following colleges for MS in Cyber-security/Information Assurance in their onsite program:-

    1.University of Washington Cyber-security Program Bothell Campus
    2.Northeastern University Information Assurance Program Boston Campus
    3.Delft University of Technology 4TU Cyber-security Program,Netherlands

    I would be an international student and would like to look for a job after my MS,hence the reason for selecting onsite instead of online.

    I am having a hard time deciding between colleges 1 & 2 because of the mixed reviews.

    I have no clue about college 3 other than the fact that it ranks 50 in QS top universities for Computer Science for the past 3-4 years.

    I would like your help in this matter.

    Note:- Please do not tell me to apply to other colleges other than the above mentioned.

    I feel the need to point out the obvious, that this is a distance learning discussion forum and so asking about on-campus programs is a bit of a stretch. Despite that I'm sure people will offer opinions. Also, this is a strongly US-centric board and so no one is going to be able to speak about Delft with any degree of authority. Having said that I'll offer these two points. 1) where you plan to live/work after the degree is a factor. If you'll be in the US then a US degree should get the edge. 2) assuming that all three are roughly equivalent in training, prestige, etc. I'd let cost be a deciding factor if one costs substantially less. There's no point in paying more if you're not getting more. Beyond that I will only say that I hope your life becomes a bit less hellish.

    Texas continues to develop online degree programs, this one from UTSA. It's interesting that this program seems to include the acquisition of a bunch of relevant (I guess) certificates.
