All applications will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis. Ordinarily, the minimum entry criteria for each stage (PGCert, PGDip & MA) of the Maritime Security programme are as follows:
- Applicants should hold a honours degree at 2:2 or above (or equivalent international grade/qualification), from a recognised University, preferably in a social science subject (e.g. Peace and Conflict Studies, International Relations, Security Studies, Politics, Development Studies).
- Applications from those who do not hold a honours degree at 2:2 or above but can demonstrate at least three years’ work experience in a relevant field will also be considered. Here a careful evaluation of the applicant’s capacity to complete the programme successfully, including assessment, where appropriate, through an admissions interview and review of a writing sample will take place.
Months of entry
Maritime Security is one of the most dynamic and expanding sectors in the security industry with an impact on development efforts, insurance, international law, global shipping, the broader global economy, as well as transnational security.
It encompasses the headline issue of piracy alongside other security challenges such as trafficking by sea, illegal fishing, and security at port.
