Dr. Gerasimos Tsourapas gave a public lecture on the international politics of Middle East migration in Amman, Jordan.
The course was all around excellent. I particularly enjoyed the five-day training programme, opportunity to complete a work placement, and the module diversity. The degree has helped me make a major career change. Following the degree, I am now pursuing a career that I am passionate about in national security.
I really enjoyed studying under the real leaders in my field. The course was assessed in a varied way, without too much emphasis on exams, which I believe allowed me to strengthen skills which would be more useful professionally.
One of the really interesting things about this masters programme was that we were taught by internationally recognised academics, we also had experts and practitioners on the topics we were studying come in and actually lead our seminars; for instance, Jamie Shea (Deputy Assistant Secretary for Emerging Security Challenges) from NATO.
