About

This Security and Risk Management programme offered at the University of Leicester is for you if... you have, or aspire to have, responsibility for crime prevention, risk and security within your organisation.

Overview

The increasing professionalisation of the security industry has meant that both existing security professionals and those seeking entry into the profession view a postgraduate degree as essential to their career ambitions.  The course will not only enable you to develop your academic knowledge of crime, risk and security management, but it will also strengthen your professional skills and abilities.

This Security and Risk Management programme offered at the University of Leicester  will provide you with a thorough knowledge of security and crime risk analysis and management. You will develop an understanding of a range of theoretical models that explain why and how people commit crime, how to analyse and assess risk, and how to manage security. 

You will gain a thorough grounding in theory and practice of security and risk management. The course will equip you with the skills to engage in informed debate about major issues in security and risk management and to design, conduct and critically appraise research and develop new approaches to problem solving which can be applied in practice.

You will also benefit from a number of supported learning events – ranging from an online Induction, to Academic Skills Programmes. You will also be invited to attend two study schools where you will be able to get face-to-face support from academics and also meet other students on your course. Study schools run in April and September. Attendance is optional and there is no additional cost for study school attendance, this is included in the course fees. However, students are expected to pay their own travel and accommodation costs.
