“The National Security College offers a unique opportunity for engagement with Australian public policy. The College offers unparalleled access to a wealth of knowledge and expertise in the areas of National Security and policy making in an Australian context. As a result of my time with the College I have secured an internship with the Australian Strategic Policy Institute and highly competitive position within the Department of Defence Graduate program.”
“The National Security College has given me invaluable access to experienced Australian practitioners throughout my learning. Whether lecturers from ANU, government officials of the highest calibre, or my classmates from diverse public service backgrounds, the College facilitates activities and team learning in a state-of-the-art environment. I cannot imagine a better introduction to the APS career that now awaits me thanks to my studies.”
“I have found studying at the National Security College to be very rewarding. Both the faculty and the guest lecturers are top class. The evening timetable fits around my work commitments and I’ve made some great connections with colleagues from across the National Security Community. I can't recommend it enough.”
"Working in an operational capability in the national security community, I have found the Executive Leadership program, the Masters program in National Security and the NSC public lecture program to be helpful and stimulating. The courses are more than just leadership, policy and strategy training and the collegiality more than just networking."
