About

The Migration Studies programme from University of Birmingham will introduce you to the main challenges and opportunities associated with the advent of new migration and super-diversity and equip you with the skills and knowledge you will need to address those challenges.

Overview

The Migration Studies programme from University of Birmingham will examine the social, economic and political impacts of international migration and examine current, proposed and ideal approaches to welfare provision in the era of superdiversity. Migration Studies is unique in bringing together theory and practice with cutting-edge research and research methods to enable you to develop applied knowledge in a rapidly evolving field. It will explore data to help map superdiverse populations and examine the rights and entitlements of migrants in different societies.

It will offer you a unique opportunity to meet scholars from a wide range of disciplines engaged in research and policy work in migration and superdiversity.
