Course summary

We offer supervision in Refugee Care, allowing you to undertake research that introduces a therapeutic dimension and psychosocial perspectives to your work with asylum seekers, refugees and other involuntarily dislocated persons.

Our graduates go on to several different destinations either as practitioners or academics or researchers in spheres related to involuntary dislocation, working in international organisations, NGOs, local authorities, etc., as well as pursuing further studies in related areas. Many of our students who are already working in these fields, in various capacities, return to their existing contexts, substantially enriched by their studies with us, assuming higher or more responsible positions, addressing issues from more specialist perspectives.

Your future

Our graduates go on to several different destinations, including further study and training in psychoanalysis, Jungian analysis, or psychoanalytic psychotherapy. Many of our students are already professionals, clinical and non-clinical, so return to their existing fields, either in jobs or further training, and use study with us to deepen their understanding of their work.
