The University of the West of England (UWE Bristol) and CII have launched a postgraduate MSC risk management and insurance qualification to be delivered from January 2020.
The course, which graduates can now sign up for via the UWE Bristol website, will see representatives from major insurers and brokers delivering guest lectures and allow work-shadowing for graduates who sign up to the year-long programme.
Designed to prepare graduates for senior roles in the industry, the programme develops core skills in risk management and insurance practice, alongside a deep understanding of the contemporary business environment.
The course includes opportunities to visit companies such as Lloyd's of London, work on consultancy projects and attend networking events.
According to UWE Bristol, as a result of interest from the profession there are now plans in place to offer a two-year, part-time version of the postgraduate qualification in the future.
Completion of the course will also significantly shorten the study path for the CII's qualifications, including ACII.
