You need an undergraduate degree (e.g. bachelor) that is comparable to a UK upper second class honours degree. You can still apply without this, and we will consider each application on its merits.
We set minimum basic computer requirements because your study resources are accessed via the Student Portal and it is vital that you can access this regularly. For this degree, you will also need Adobe Flash Player to view video material and a media player (such as VLC) to play video files.
Months of entry
This MA is the only programme of its type to be offered by distance learning, and has quickly become one of the largest programmes on forced migration anywhere in the world.
The programme provides a solid legal, practical and theoretical understanding of refugee protection and forced migration.
You will become more independent in managing and critiquing law, policy and practice, and also in gathering, organising and deploying evidence to form balanced judgements and develop policy recommendations.
