I would like to commend both you as the module tutor and the team at LMJU, on such an interesting and thought provoking module (Module 1: Terrorism and Counter-Terrorism). It is truly excellent. Not only have I learnt a great deal through the video sessions and my own research, I have through critical analysis reviewed and questioned both recent and historical events that I have been intimately involved. The hard work and many hours that you all have devoted has resulted in a first class module.
