Summary

Our internationally recognised course will give you a comprehensive understanding of the complex nature of global refugee movements, the processes which lie behind the search for protection and asylum and the diverse local, national and international responses to forced displacement.

You will gain interdisciplinary knowledge of the gendered, economic, political, legal, socio-cultural, and psychological processes related to forced migration.

You will also develop the skills to plan, organise and carry out independent research to inform professional practice and policy-making.

Learning about forced migration on this course is participatory, mutual and draws from real life experiences, including from our students, who come from diverse backgrounds and some are refugees themselves.

A Master’s degree in Refugee Studies is a qualification that is internationally valued. Our students typically go on to pursue a wide range of exciting and challenging careers in international, governmental, non-governmental and community organisations. Those interested in pursuing postgraduate research degrees have been successful in gaining places and scholarships internationally.
