The Linx International Group, through its security management training section, PerpetuityARC Training, has announced the relaunch of its updated MSc International Security and Risk Management in partnership with the University of West London (UWL).  Applications to study for this academic qualification in the field of security management are open now, for intakes in February and October 2021.

The MSc International Security and Risk Management course addresses 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 (through a bespoke and interactive online learning platform) 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. 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.”

The Linx International Group’s Director of Training, Angus Darroch-Warren 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, 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.”
