Perpetuity Training Academy – the renowned provider of security management training – has announced that the first intake of students for its MSc in International Security and Risk Management is now underway. This is a unique collaboration between Perpetuity and the University of South Wales. The course is the first of its kind, setting a new benchmark for vocational and academic excellence.
Ken Livingstone MSc FSyI, training director at Perpetuity, said: “The course is designed to enable students to study around their other commitments. By focusing on commercially-relevant professional content and modern learning techniques, we aim to provide students with the tools and academic qualifications needed to further their career.”
Students have the option of completing the course in 12 or 24 months and the choice of two intakes per year. Key subject areas are criminology, loss prevention, crime at work, fraud and counter-terrorism along with security management functions, strategy, finance and entrepreneurialism.
Due to its content and flexibility, the course has already received more than 200 enquiries and over 60 applications.
All students joining the MSc are enrolled as full members of the University of South Wales, with access to all student resources including the university’s excellent online library.
Responsiveness of the team
One learner has remarked: “The course content is simple to digest and a great deal of thought has gone into its preparation. As I travel a lot, and most of my study is done on the move, the ability to download content in PDF format has really helped. Another strong point has been the responsiveness of the Perpetuity Training team when I’ve needed assistance. So far, so very good.”
