PerpetuityARC Training relaunches MSc International Security and Risk Management qualification

Applications are now open for the online/distance learning academic qualification, available from PerpetuityARC Training and in partnership with the University of West London (UWL). Intakes will be in February and October 2021.

The MSc International Security and Risk Management course is designed to address critical issues in security management, combining theoretical knowledge with professional best practice, and refines research methods. It is delivered as an online/distance learning course and can be undertaken in one year full-time or two years part-time study. Students will progress through five modules, and then complete a dissertation on a related topic of their choice to complete the degree. The modules are:

  • Security Management: Prevention and Design
  • Strategic Security Management and Leadership
  • Security Management: Risk Management and Loss Prevention
  • Security Management and Delivering Value
  • Research Methods
  • Dissertation

PerpetuityARC Training and UWL share a combined objective to develop practitioner standards within the security sector, and the MSc represents a pinnacle of academic excellence in security management education, believes the two. Deputy Vice-Chancellor and Provost for Health at UWL, Professor Anthony Woodman, states: “The field of security is an area of strategic priority in education and research at the University of West London. This new MSc programme provides an educational opportunity uniquely tailored to security practitioners to help them further develop their potential, and complements our growing suite of courses in the areas of criminology, security and police studies including a new Professional Doctorate in Policing, Crime and Security.”

The Linx International Group’s Director of Training, Angus Darroch-Warren, is leading a team of world-class subject matter specialists and expert tutors. He comments: “PerpetuityARC Training is proud to be working in partnership with UWL and renowned academics such as Professor Alison Wakefield. We are looking forward to building on the success of our MSc programme and welcoming the first cohort to this new look course in February.”

Professor of Criminology and Security Studies at the UWL, Alison Wakefield (also one of IFSEC Global’s Top Influencers in Security for 2020), adds: “Academic courses are increasingly valuable to security practitioners within a competitive job market and the increasingly complex strategic environment in which security is delivered. They must take account of a wide range of risks, including crime, cyber-attack, terrorism and other civil emergencies, and respond to them in accordance with a structured, risk management-based approach while being adaptable to uncertainties.”

“This course will significantly enhance the subject knowledge of the student and their wider skill-set, enabling them to solve security problems much more confidently, but also enhance their employability skillset as a security professional.”

Since its inception, the MSc has established itself as one of the Linx International Group’s most in-demand courses, setting the benchmark for academic achievement and professional development.
