'Eager to resume my education, the programme has given me fantastic experiences through its right balance between academically stimulating and comprehensive hands on approach to the field of strategic security studies. Even after four years of work following my undergraduate degree, I could not feel more confident in the face of my future professional career thanks to this programme.'

'This excellent programme offers a breadth of security courses, ranging from Intelligence Analysis to European Security Strategies. I especially enjoyed the option to learn Arabic whilst in Glasgow. The mobility period in Germany provided an opportunity to engage with the practice of intelligence through courses such as Data Analytics. Highlights for me have been: a rewarding experience in studying at different institutions; a placement with the United Nations; attending the Berlin Security Conference; and befriending classmates from all over the world.'

'I joined this programme with only the slightest idea of what I wanted to do after my undergraduate. One year down the line I must say, I made the right choice. There is no place I’d rather be. The programme features a rich array of dedicated and committed teachers, leaders in their various fields. If you want to study and at the same time see the world through the eyes of others, this programme is just the best for you. Who says you can’t kill two birds with 1 stone?'
Johnathon Ricker, USA (2015-17)
'The masters programme offers a truly unique and international approach to security, intelligence, and strategic studies. Studying across Europe in different cultural environments exposes you to various perspectives and approaches. The programme’s flexibility allows you to pursue your own personal focus while learning from and interacting with an array of academics and professionals. As a group of international students we are constantly learning from one another, inside and outside of the classroom. I am very happy with my decision to pursue a dual MSc and I highly recommend this programme.'
