About the course

This one-year course includes four modules from our established M.Sc. in Managing Risk and System Change. Spread over one academic year it allows students to supplement their further education and career development without the need to commit immediately to an M.Sc. On successful completion graduates of this course may progress to Postgraduate Diploma level (three further modules over one additional year).

It is relevant to safety critical industries across the globe and focuses on people already in work, who have responsibility for managing: risk; change; safety; quality; planning; system design. It brings the next generation of safety, risk and change management to you, in your work, embedded in your everyday practice with a systemic, proactive and performance focus.

Colette Kelly – Graduate April 2018


I expected an amazing standard of education and I was not disappointed. The factor, however, that motivated me to attain a level of conceptual change, that translated the acquisition of information into a new way of thinking and a new perspective on how I perceive the world, was the ethos of encouragement, genuine interest and belonging I experienced through every contact with the lecturers and the support team.

My lecturers facilitated an expansive learning experience; my supervisors lifted spirits and curtailed effusive prose throughout a tumultuous period of thesis preparation and writing, the support team reassured with an enthusiasm that was infectious at crisis points.
My M.Sc. in Risk Management and System Change course was delivered online, with regular onsite events occurring across two years. The creativity with which the course team designed and delivered the course ensured that a diverse group of students, located world-wide, bonded in a manner that is a testament to the holistic quality of a Trinity education.

I made life-long friends. From the initial enquiry through to graduation and beyond, the level of support and care offered continues to inspire and surprise me.
