UCL (University College London)
This course provides students about to enrol on a security-related doctoral programme with a thorough understanding of the problem domain, threats to society, infrastructure and individuals. The programme focuses on how to apply science more effectively to understand crime problems and develop risk-reduction measures. This intensive programme is delivered through lectures, seminars, tutorials, and practical exercises during 12 weeks starting at the end of September. Practical work involves the analysis and interpretation of data sets, and the development of new ideas for solving problems.
A minimum of an upper 2nd Class Honours degree in a science subject (such as engineering or computer science), or social sciences (such as psychology or geography), from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Due to the limited number of places available applicants who also hold a strong Master�s degree will be prioritised.
Core Modules: Doing research in security science; foundations of security and crime science; risk and contingency planning.
Assessment is through class tests, unseen written examinations, coursework and presentations in December and January.
