The course is extremely actual, very interesting and gives a good narrative on the refugee phenomena today, rather than the mostly negative news we get to hear about through the media. It also gives a great insight into the (many times free) information that is available on this, and shows there is a enormous community out there with the right attitude to make a difference.
Maybe one suggestion or ask, there is no communication from the instructors or the teaching staff. Although appreciated that they have a full-time job already, I think most students would highly appreciate that there is more active participation from them on the forum as well.

I hadn't thought about immigrants this much before. I can even say that I learned that people who suffer from this issue have different statuses thanks to this course. Especially the information given in the light of official information was very satisfying. I think that people who take this course will have very serious information about refugees, stateless people and asylum seekers. Thank you very much to Professor David Cantor and Dr Sarah Singer who guided us very well while taking the course. Finally, I would like to especially thank the University of London for presenting this important course to our knowledge.

This course exceeded my expectations. I am much knowledgeable about the history, philosophy and current issues that make up the current global refugee situation. The topics and readings challenged me to think more critically and helped me better understand the complexity as well as the nuances of this topic. We were not always assigned, but were presented with a wealth of resources that I am now aware of and can access when I want to learn more. Thank you to Dr, Cantor and Dr. Singer for the logicall organization of the course.

This is a great course that helps to learn and understand one of the most serious issues of our time. It was very exciting to learn the diferences beetwin migrants, refugees and forced displace people. It is so easy put all of them in one single group but this course helped me to learn what are the diferences and also why the definitions of each of this group have legal consecuences related to the human rights of any of those groups.

I found this course extremely useful for any person interested in the field. It provides materials which enable learners to expand their knowledge about the system of global protection and its present and emerging challenges. In my opinion, the course is a great introduction to the system of international protection as well as a useful update. Moreover, the methodology of the course enables learners to smoothly engage with the topic.

One of the best online courses I've seen - especially liked the way that peer review and discussion facilitates wider perspectives from students across the globe with their own experience of refugees and migration. Having peers who are reading alongside you and who supplement the lectures with their own reflections and insights from research and life experience was helpful. I'd highly recommend this course.

I thought this class was a great beginner's course to better understand the response to refugees and forced migration in the 21st century as well to understand more of the history of refugees, the central organizations that support refugees and migrants, and trends in the current refugee flow around the world. I highly recommend taking the course!

Amazing course! It offers fundamental insight in the refugee phenomenon and displacement in general. Introductory videos, enlightening (although occasionally long) reading material and well-tailored quizes make this course ideal for everyone who truly wishes to gain a general yet thorough and realistic knowledge of forced displacement.

It is a very informative and useful course. It helps me a lot to understand refugees' crises. Evaluate new and emerging challenges in the refugee field. I gain the skill of apply critical thinking when I apply legal and policy categories to reflect on factual scenarios. I enjoy taking this course, and I recommended it.
By Narmina H•
I like the course because it is reachable and reading materials during the whole course are quite current I must say and useful during daily life as well for whom who chose refugee problems as their career. Optional assignments also make course attendants think about the topic from different perspectives. Well done!

The course is worth it .I have leant a lot from peers and Lecturers from the videos and shared materials and information from various countries in the world.What has come out clearly is lack of respect to humanity and political will to create a peaceful enviroment where resources are equatably shared.

The course was great and enormously incentivated myself to continue the studies in the area. I have decided to enroll in the Refugee Protection and Forced Migration Studies MA whilst doing this course because of the high quality of the material and the accessibility provided by the plataform.

Quedo bastante satisfecha de haber concluido este curso. Aprendí bastante sobre derechos humanos, migración y la gran tarea que queda por delante para este sector de la sociedad. Este curso me ha motivado a adentrarme aún más en el estudio de derechos humanos y diplomacia. ¡Muchas gracias!

This is a very complete course on refugee. Information is accurate, most of it is up to date or if you are curious enough, you have the hint to find the current data in the same data basis the course proposes. I have learned a lot about the refugee phenomena and hope many people do too.
By Maria E•
An excellent introduction to the topic. I particularly enjoyed engaging with fellow students from around the world and understanding different perspectives. I found the format and structure of the MOOC easy to follow and the reminders to stay on track were very helpful.

I'd surely recommend this course. Although reading materials maybe need an update, it's a great introduction to the topic of refugees (and forced migration). Additionally, its discussion topics and tasks are intriguing, to say the least!

The course provides relevant knowledge on different categories of displaced persons. Who are refugees? What does the term IDP stand for? How does International Law address the problem? Let's take the course!
