From international sporting events and concerts to world-class retail and transport hubs, mass gatherings are increasing in scale and complexity. In the current global environment the challenges of keeping people safe are greater than ever.
Why Coventry University?
An award-winning university, we are committed to providing our students with the best possible experience. We continue to invest in both our facilities and our innovative approach to education. Our students benefit from industry-relevant teaching, and resources and support designed to help them succeed. These range from our modern library and computing facilities to dedicated careers advice and our impressive Students’ Union activities.
Students will analyse the features that make for best-practice planning, policy and process, so that they can go on to devise effective crowded places arrangements of their own. The programme covers important legal and political frameworks of the crowd safety and emergency management sector.
The course will also help provide an understanding of the issues that underline many problems faced by crowd safety management practitioners, such as multi-agency cooperation and coordination and business continuity. We will look at how these issues may be addressed, in practice with a view to enhancing the effectiveness of integrated emergency management and organisational resilience.
You will also be required to carry out an independent piece of research of your choosing, which seeks to develop skills in personal organisation, research and critical thinking, as well as advancing your knowledge in the subject area.
