MA Applied Security Strategy

Innovation Scholarship Programme

2013/14 entry 

This is a ground-breaking programme which will pull together learning and insight from across the range of organisations dealing with contemporary security. In line with our innovative approach to teaching, we are looking for the brightest and best students from a range of professional and academic backgrounds to help us make this MA the leading programme of its kind anywhere in the world.

As one of the first students to take this programme, you will be helping us break new ground in the way degree programmes are taught and assessed. We want you to act not just as a student, but a critical friend and collaborator, pushing us to excel and helping us to improve.

In return for your active contribution to the development of this programme, all those who apply within our deadline and are selected for October 2013 entry will receive an Innovation Scholarship in the form of a substantial reduction on tuition fees. Entry to the programme will be restricted to a small number of individuals who can demonstrate they have the talent, aptitude and determination to innovate and contribute. This is not a programme for passive observers; you will want to master the body of knowledge but also to challenge conventional thinking and find effective strategic solutions. 

In addition to our Innovation Scholarship, we’ll be offering a number of full-fee scholarships with the aim of building a cohort of students with diverse professional, academic and international backgrounds. Excellence Scholarships will be offered to the most gifted applicants while Professional Scholarships will be offered to nominated early and mid-career practitioners identified as potential future leaders and strategists by our partner organisations in the third sector, UK armed forces and civil service, and overseas.
