Course content

This internationally recognised distance-learning course is the first of its kind in the world.

It is taught by world-leading academic and practitioner experts, from our Rights Lab - the world's first large-scale research platform for ending slavery which is currently tracking slavery with satellite technology and ensuring businesses don't use slave labour.

It will provide you not only with the academic grounding of the study of contemporary slavery but also comprehensive training on how best to make a difference through the liberation and social reintegration of those in slavery.

You will be introduced to key concepts and challenges in slavery, liberation, anti-slavery and human rights, and will benefit from:

  • an in-depth, academic look into an important and growing area of human rights work
  • specialist practical training to plan and carry-out anti-slavery and anti-trafficking activities aimed at liberation, rehabilitation, reintegration, prevention, protection and prosecution
  • training to enable you to conduct independent research in the specific area of human rights

As this is a distance-learning course, the majority of content will be taught online, allowing you to connect with the course and other students from across the globe. MA and PGDip students also study at Nottingham through intensive face-to-face modules; however, the PGCert can be completed solely online. If you choose to study the MA or PGDip part-time, you won't need to travel to Nottingham until your second year.
