Want to study a Master’s in Risk Management? Our distance learning MSc Organisation Risk Management course allows you to earn and learn at the same time.

This course is suitable for those who are currently working within Risk Management wishing to gain qualifications in the area and also to those just starting out on a career in risk and need to develop your knowledge and skills.

You will be provided with practical problem solving skills as well as a deep theoretical knowledge of the risk environment, making you highly desirable in the job market.

What's covered in the course?

The course is taught entirely online allowing you to tailor your study hours around your lifestyle. You will also find a tutor available as required to provide additional support.

You will be encouraged to use your own experiences to apply techniques and develop solutions to issues, thereby offering immediate benefit to your work environment.

The course closely aligns to the Institute of Risk Managers International Diploma in Risk Management and we are seeking exemptions from their examinations.

Distance Learning

This course is offered as a distance learning course, enabling you to study at a time that suits you. You don’t have to attend any face-to-face sessions, and delivery of course materials is done through our e-learning platform, Moodle. Each module has a revision day which, although not mandatory, you should highly consider attending. If you can’t make it, supporting materials are made available via email.

Enhancing Employability Skills

All assignments are grounded in real working organisations, allowing you to apply your knowledge into a real working environment. The majority of students enrolling on this course will already be in employment, although not necessarily in the area of risk management.

You will be encouraged to use your own organisations in the consideration of topic areas, thus increasing your profile within that organisation. Should this prove difficult, the team has a strong track record of working with individual students to provide case studies and / or internships. 


Many of our students are already employed and are sponsored through their study, so that on their return they can set up a risk management function or apply the concepts to their existing department.

Typical organisations that they come from include local authorities, the health sector, central government and government agencies, and financial services.

Many of our students work in risk management or a similar role.
