International opportunities for students

Students on this degree programme have the opportunity to study in locations across Europe – the University of Glasgow, the University of Trento or the Dublin City University, and the University of Prague. The student body is highly international, and the degree is taught entirely in English with extensive opportunities for language learning. IMSISS students examine, analyse and learn about the practical implications of a broad range of contemporary security challenges, such as terrorism, civil war and conflict, mass migration, energy supply security, cyber security and new technologies, and transnational and serious organised crime. They also explore the intelligence and strategic approaches used by governmental and non-governmental actors to combat these threats.

The degree offers its students the opportunity to meet with and work alongside a range of academics and researchers from international partner universities and think tanks from around the world, as well as practitioner experts from governmental and industry security and defence sectors.
