The Refugee-Led Research Hub (RLRH) at Oxfordโ€™s Refugee Studies Centre (RSC) is launching a 12-month fellowship for refugees and other displaced scholars who are interested in graduate-level study in the field of Refugee and Forced Migration Studies (RFMS).

Additional seminars with Oxford and BIEA colleagues will enable learners to acquire a broad understanding of key academic debates in RFMS and to develop critical thinking and analytical skills. They will also build research skills to carry out an individual or group research project, and will be supported to publish their work in prestigious academic and research outlets.

Throughout the fellowship, we will run graduate school information sessions, hold career conversations, and facilitate access to a network of RFMS specialists. In the final months of the programme, all fellows will take part in a 3-month placement where they will apply their acquired academic and research skills in a professional setting.
