The money is directed towards aid and support for the reconstruction of the country reeling from a three-year war against the IS. (Islamic State).

The Iraqi people have fought long and hard to abolish the Islamic State (IS) from its land and this has all been supported and reinforced through the international community.

There is great knowledge and insight to be gained from this new development to the fight against terrorism in the world. The continuous developments in this arena is useful for those looking to start a career in the field of security and risk management. It is more important for those already pursuing careers in this field and the best way to enhance ones’ qualifications is by enrolling on a Masters level qualification in security and risk management.

What is prescribed in a postgraduate qualification in security and risk management? Students will learn concepts of crime management, physical risk management and theoretical models on how people commit crime, how to analyze risk associated with crime and how to manage security threats.

This is all well and good in theory, but a professional requires skills and competencies to implement these theories in practice and that is exactly what the University of Leicester MSc in Security and Risk Management has to offer the students who successfully enroll onto this course.

The field of criminology is vast, we would recommend you discuss with an admissions consultant or a mentor to identify the most beneficial pathway for your career aspirations. For example, if you are an investigator or detective or a police officer, the theoretical concepts of security and risk management would be address in the first year of your police training. It wouldn’t be beneficial for your career growth. A more apt course would be an MSc in Terrorism, Security and Policing or an MSc in Crime, Justice and Psychology.
