Migration and mobility issues – including discussions on refugees, free movement of people after Brexit or proposals for dividing walls between countries – are today at the centre of politics and society on a national, regional and global level.

This highly relevant MSc provides advanced study on the complexities of mobility and the reasons why individuals migrate, as well as the various social, economic, legal and cultural challenges surrounding migration.

As a truly interdisciplinary programme, students benefit from a unique combination of perspectives from law, sociology, economics and politics, as well as modern languages, humanities and the arts.

There is a vast choice of optional units, from modern slavery to the migration of music, so you can tailor the programme to suit your skills and interests. As such, we are welcoming applicants from a wide variety of undergraduate disciplines who share an interest in this subject.

The programme is linked with the Bristol Institute for Migration and Mobility Studies, and as a student you will benefit from interactions with some of the world-leading scholars in the area.

With an opportunity to undertake an assessment-based work placement in a relevant organisation, you will gain specific skills and knowledge of value to organisations both in the UK and overseas.
