New PgCert Defence and Security Export

For those of you wishing to develop further in this field we are pleased to announce the Defence and Security Export PgCert. Launched in January 2019 this course has been specifically designed with the busy practitioner in mind. Consisting of five modules and a research project, and delivered through a blend of residential and distance learning, the course offers those working within the defence and security sector the opportunity to further expand their knowledge. Key aspects of defence exports are explored, spanning strategic trade controls, compliance, offset and negotiation. The Defence and Security Export PgCert can be obtained in one year, but also benefits from a two year registration period, thus allowing flexibility for busy professionals.

Alternately, each of the modules of the PgCert can be taken seperately as a short course. The Strategic Trade Controls and Compliance module of the PgCert is also the Tier 3 course of the SEC programme. For futher information:
