"I thoroughly enjoyed the course. Well administered and planned with adequate information in a timely manner. All the modules had their benefits, and were very informative. I enjoyed learning, stretching my own educational knowledge and expectations, pushing myself out of my comfort zone academically, and of course getting my final grade which surpassed my own expectations. Interesting, informative, relevant and challenging,. Thank you to all."
"This masters was an enjoyable and informative experience that had very good insight into the topic of international and transnational policing. Taught by experienced professionals the course not only gives you the academic side but the experience of individuals who engaged in this work first hand for many years."
"The material is so well explained that it makes reading very interesting as it holds your attention; it’s like you can’t wait to get to the materials in the module that follows. The most positive aspect of the course is that you get to articulate your points with a number of students from all over the world, which gives you perspectives on the topics discussed."
