This MA in Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies has quickly become one of the largest programmes on forced migration in the world, and unique in being the only programme of its type to be offered by distance learning. It enables students to acquire a rigorous legal, practical and theoretical understanding of refugee protection and forced migration, whilst developing expertise through a choice of elective modules.
