Course summary

This unique course, led by industry experts, focuses on scientific elements related to crowd dynamics and new practices in managing crowds.

Overview

Where better to study best practice in managing crowded spaces, whether for events, festivals, transportation hubs or other public spaces, than Edinburgh - the world's largest festival city?

This one year work-based programme has been created by many of the key experts in this area. In fact, the course team has worked with Festivals and Events in more than 35 countries. It draws expertise from a wide range of international team members. The Programme's focus is on the integration of the physical and psychosocial processes involved in safely managing crowded spaces. It provides students with a unique opportunity to create and test new theory and then practice this in the workplace. It delivers a comprehensive understanding of how densely populated areas are managed, secured and above all made safe for the tourism, hospitality, business, conference, music, events, sports and technology industries.

The blended learning and block delivery method ensures the programme fits in with the efficiency needs of employees and employers; as students can study while either working in the industry, or can continue to work in their current day job if they are considering a switch into this expanding sector.

Course details

For reasons of both safety and security, the design and management of crowded spaces has become one of the most important aspects of creating and sustaining a resilient programme of events. For the past five years, Edinburgh Napier University has worked with Professor Chris Kemp and MOM Consultancy to develop the delivery of innovative education in this crucial subject area. Edinburgh Napier University, through key partners such as EventScotland, have developed a series of Professorial lectures, courses, workshops and strategic initiatives with the aim of developing crowd management and security professional development activities. Professor Chris Kemp has experience of delivering courses to football match commanders and also training the Police Scotland Bronze and Silver Commanders for events such as the Commonwealth Games. Alongside this has been the successful delivery of Executive Certificate courses in Crowd Management in the Gulf and also with the Scottish Police College (SPC), cementing professional relationships between the university and a range of key stakeholders and festival and event providers in the crowded space area.

This programme aims to develop your further interest in, and knowledge and understanding of, crowded space environments. Their design, creation, development, management and the inherent challenges associated with them will be studied.
