Undergraduate Teaching

The Strategy and Security Institute offers several undergraduate modules open to students across the university and currently run in conjunction with the Law School and the Politics Department. These modules can be taken as part of a Law or Politics degree, form part of a Flexible Combined Honours degree tailored specifically to your requirements or if you are an undergraduate from elsewhere in the University you may be able to add one of our modules up to 30 credits to your existing programme of study. SSI Academics also supervise undergraduate dissertations.  


At the moment I’m doing my dissertation with the SSI as well as taking a final-year module with them. The difference between this and my other modules is startling. The SSI team are all experts in their field, with many having become academics after long careers in the armed forces or elsewhere, and it shows; their knowledge is practical, not just academic. They are also clearly a tight-knit team and work together to present as much expertise to their students as possible, every one of them taking part in teaching the same module.
