The Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies programme from University of London 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.
This MA is designed for anyone who wishes to pursue careers in a range of professional contexts in the refugee, human rights or humanitarian fields. By combining your studies with your existing commitments, you will be able to maintain your career momentum.
Potential employers include international agencies, such as the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the International Organization for Migration (IOM), governmental bodies and non-governmental organisations.
