This programme is suitable for those who aspire to become qualified and capable security consultants.
It is designed for employees who are currently working in, or have the potential to work in, a key role
with responsibilities for ensuring that security protection is incorporated into operations and organisational functions.
Alternatively, you could have experience and skills in security consultancy or management as a generalist or specialist.
We welcome mature students who have not been within a formal education system for some time or graduates from other relevant programmes who wish to continue their professional and academic development.
We have designed this course to provide prospective and practising security consultants with a range of skills and knowledge in order to be able to operate with confidence within the security sector.
Our aim is to blend the academic framework for consultancy practices with the security needs and requirements for today's businesses. It will also allow you to develop
your advisory, technical, business, communication and management skills
From an initial focus on the more fundamental elements of security processes, the programme will address the requirements for project planning and management skills and knowledge, before moving towards the development of strategic and other essential functions.
You will benefit from using our virtual learning environment (VLE), which will help you to fit in your studies around your personal and professional commitments and study at times that suit you.
