Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies

The MA in Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies provides a rigorous theoretical and practical understanding of the field of international refugee law and forced migration. It enables students to acquire a solid legal, practical and theoretical understanding of refugee protection and forced migration, developing expertise through a choice of elective modules. Attendees will hone their self-reliance in dealing with - and critiquing - law, policy and practice in the field, and will also learn how to gather, organise and deploy evidence to form balanced judgements and develop policy recommendations. This is an online programme, with access to the course content through a Virtual Learning Environment (VLE). The VLE also gives you access to: Associate tutors who provide academic guidance throughout your studies; academically rigorous and up-to-date learning materials and resources; online tasks and assessments ('e-tivities') plus seen examinations for each of the modules; peer to peer learning in online discussion forums; access to world-class online library facilities. The MA in Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies has its foundations in the teaching and research of a leading centre in refugee law, the Refugee Law Initiative (RLI). The RLI is the leading national academic centre in the United Kingdom dedicated exclusively to International Refugee Law. The RLI is part of the Human Rights Consortium of the University of London's School of Advanced Study. The programme directors for the course are Dr David James Cantor, Director of the RLI and a recognised specialist in the field, and Dr Sarah Singer, academic at the RLI and Lecturer in Human Rights Law at the School of Advanced Study. This MA enables you to combine your studies with your ongoing professional and domestic commitments. It is designed for those who wish to pursue careers in a range of professional contexts in the refugee, human rights or humanitarian fields.
