This MSC, designed by a panel of academic departments, industrial partners and law enforcement and security agencies, equips students with the knowledge to understand, analyse, prevent and disrupt organised crime and terrorism by utilising a set of evidence-based methodological tools, and core expertise pioneered by the UCL Jill Dando Institute. What and how will I learn? Students develop an understanding of how science and a variety of professional disciplines can contribute to tackling the threats of organised crime and terrorism, and are able to apply scientific principles to security, think more strategically in developing and implementing countermeasures, and appreciate the complexity of implementation issues. Degree Structure Students undertake courses to the value of 180 credits. Six core courses (90 credits), two optional courses (30 credits) and a dissertation (60 credits). A Postgraduate Diploma (120 credits, full-time one year, part-time two years, flexible 3-5 years) is offered.

Student performance is assessed through laboratory and project reports, unseen written examination, coursework, presentations, and the research project and dissertation. Why should I study this degree at UCL? The UCL Dept of Security and Crime Science, established in 2001, was the first in the world devoted specifically to reducing crime through teaching, research, public policy analysis and by the dissemination of evidence-based information on crime reduction. This MSc programme is delivered by experienced practitioners and researchers working in counter-terrorism, intelligence, law enforcement, risk assessment and security technology. Students also benefit from full access to UCL experts on a range of ethical, political, religious, and community issues. Our graduate students come from varied backgrounds many are practitioners and are encouraged to contribute their experience in and out of the classroom. Your future career This new programme equips students with the knowledge to develop operational strategies to counter organised crime and terrorism. This unique linking of organised crime and terrorism, and the study of methodologies that can practically tackle both of these areas, means that this MSc holds appeal for employers across a broad range of industries and applications. Entry Requirements Normally, a minimum of an upper second-class Bachelor's degree in a relevant discipline from a UK university or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard. Relevant disciplines include science subjects (e.g. engineering or computer science) or social science subjects (e.g. psychology, criminology or geography). Alternatively candidates may qualify for entry if they can offer five or more years of relevant professional experience (for example in the police service, or as a crime prevention worker). How to apply The deadline for applications is 31 July. Applications are accepted throughout the year however, students are advised to apply as early as possible due to competition for places. Those applying for scholarship funding (particularly overseas applicants) should take note of application deadlines. Who can apply?
