We are pleased to again be partnering with Commonwealth Scholarships Comission to offer 10 full scholarships for the October 2024 intake to our MA in Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies (taught part-time and by distance learning).

The MA in Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies has quickly become one of the largest programmes on forced migration in the world. 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.


Applicants must already have been offered a place on our MA Programme.

We recommend that applications for the MA programme reach us no later than 18 March
