Letter of Intent
The Centre for Security Studies at the University of Buckingham (BUCSIS) was founded in 2008, and delivers a range of programmes at Bachelors, Masters and Doctoral levels around the general subject area of contemporary security, intelligence and diplomacy studies. BUCSIS has a particular interest in developing new programmes aimed not only at traditional students but also at professionals working in these subject areas, and to do so in an international environment. To this end, the partnership with the War Studies University on the Diploma Studies certificate in Global Affairs and Diplomacy will significantly enhance these objectives and allow us to build what we hope will be a long-term academic relationship of mutual benefit with a partner of distinction.
