What our students say about this course

This training is by far the best I have experienced during my 27 years in the federal service and I will highly recommend it to my colleagues

Michael H. Sparks, 

Office of Security, US Department of Energy

I thoroughly enjoyed the course, which was well structured and presented allowing me to complete it whilst actually out in Afghanistan

Matthew Hammond,

 Captain, The Royal Marines

I found the Certificate in Terrorism Studies at The University of St. Andrews to be outstanding! All four modules I studied had detailed content very well laid-out and were presented in a logical, structured manner. These on-line modules were well-supported and extremely easy to utilise. Summaries, quizzes, and outlines, including supporting material, for each lecture of each module were organized very well. The peer-to-peer discussion group sections provided thoughtful insight from others taking the modules from around the world. This diversity in the students and opinions was one of the exceptional benefits for me and helped me understand and analyse the material from different points of view. I would highly recommend this Certificate program; and in fact I’m thinking of continuing further with my studies here
