We have good links with employers at Kingston University. This course was set up in response to the growing need for emergency planners, both in the UK and globally.
Throughout your degree we encourage you to think about how to apply your studies to potential real-life work situations. This ensures that you graduate with the skills employers need.
One way we keep the course up to date is by inviting guest lecturers from the many organisations with which we have contact, including:
Many of the guest speakers discuss case studies of actual disasters, such as the Boxing Day Tsunami in 2004 and Hurricane Katrina in 2005. You will also work with hazard practitioners in fields such as floods and volcanoes.
