NOW AVAILABLE Migration, Mobilities and Citizenship: Essential Learning from Research and Practice. An introductory course to guide you through some of the most interesting and important material available on migration.

This free introduction to migration will take approximately six hours and it can be completed at your own pace. All you have to do is register on the Future Learn website and you will be given up to four weeks to complete the course. If you want some extra time and a certification of completion there is a charge of £42.

‘Migration, Mobilities and Citizenship’ has been designed to give you tools to analyse your assumptions about migration as well as popular claims and assertions, and to help you develop your own ideas and contribute to debates. 

This is a very helpful introductory course and I learned a lot from it despite already having a background in Politics, Linguistics and Propaganda. There is always some angle on a topic that you hadn´t thought of. Best wishes to the course team and to the other learners who made it particularly enjoyable to study this interesting subject.”

Others on the course said:

It was very worthwhile for me to wake up at midnight to attend these sessions…MMB Academy connects me to the broader world, enabling me to see what is happening outside my island

An absolutely excellent course. I loved every second. It should be essential for anyone working in the refugee/migration sector.  I wish I’d done something like this years ago. It would have given me the ammunition to challenge some of the thinking behind the projects I have worked on. I would have done things completely differently armed with some of this knowledge. The quality of the teaching from all the academics was excellent and thank you for the high level of support and extra resources outside the sessions too.
