The MSc in Countering Organised Crime and Terrorism is aimed at security professionals whose role involves developing and implementing strategies to address the threat of extremism, against public, corporate and critical targets. The course is also suitable for those wishing to make a career in these areas. The course is delivered by experienced practitioners and researchers working in counter-terrorism, intelligence, law enforcement, risk assessment and security technology.
This popular course is essential if you need to understand how scientifically based techniques can deliver immediate and sustainable reductions in crime, through better understanding of crime problems and improving offender detection and crime prevention. This course is Europe's leading crime science programme. Certificate and Diploma also available. The course draws on multidisciplinary expertise in psychology, social science, statistics, forensic sciences, design, geography.
This new course will offer graduates a unique opportunity to gain a strategic overview of crime, an awareness of forensic science techniques, and the issues surrounding their implementation, interpretation and presentation in a court. This MSc will equip graduates to think critically and strategically about crime and forensic science and the interplay between the disciplines. The course will suit high quality graduates from a range of different disciplines such as biology/chemistry/physics, engineering, computer science, law, geography or statistics.
This course is aimed at police professionals wishing to become future leaders and managers, with a focus on providing an evidence-based approach to improve practical policing. We will train police professionals to draw upon scientific knowledge and become effective problem solvers. The course is unique in paying equal attention to developing strategic thinking, leadership and management skills, as well as operational decision-making. The course is built on the multidisciplinary principles that characterise Crime Science, and our vast experience of working with police forces across the UK and around the world.

Our courses bring together students and practitioners. Graduate students come from a variety of disciplines (both engineering and social sciences) and practitioners come from organisations such as the Met Police, the College of Policing, the National Crime Agency, the City of London police, the Wynyard Group, Principal Forensics and British Transport Police.
These courses are open to graduates (or those about to graduate) from all disciplines, and are particularly suited to practitioners from a wide field of law enforcement, defence, military, public policy, and industrial security backgrounds. Applicants with no degree will be considered on the basis of five years relevant professional experience.
The SCS is the first university department in the world devoted specifically to reducing crime. In the last Research Excellence Framework exercise (REF 2014) 100% of research submissions by the department were considered world-leading in terms of impact, placing the department 1st out of 62 institutions in the unit of assessment. The department is based at University College London, ranked 7th best university in the world in the 2015/16 QS World University Rankings.
