Well researched course documents and very nice video lectures, which really helped me to grab the understanding of complexities of terrorism. Thanks a lot..!!

Excellent introduction to terrorism studies. The lectures were interesting and engaging, and the course materials were well-presented. The final assignment gave us the chance to apply many of the things we'd learned in the course. I'd highly recommend this!

(This was also my first MOOC - and I enjoyed the experience greatly. Looking forward to taking my next course...!)

A really interesting course with some excellent modules which have a lot of course content. The video lectures are well made and explain the teaching points in a good understandable manner. The only downside for me was the course is slightly outdated and doesn't include anything after 2014. This means some of the data used is out of date as the last few years have been extremely active in regards to terrorist activity.

Great course! The lectures are very interesting!
