Flexible blended learning

The LEAP programme has been designed with flexibility in mind to meet the professional and personal development needs of those working in the humanitarian sector whilst allowing them the freedom to continue working alongside their study.

The blended learning approach combines online and campus-based learning. This flexible approach gives you the best of both worlds: opportunities to work where and when it suits you as well as access to the face-to-face teaching, world-class facilities and networking available at the University of Manchester and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine. This delivery method will only require students to be on campus in Manchester or Liverpool for short periods of time before continuing their studies online at a distance.

The duration of studies is also flexible:

– 12 to 60 months for MSc in Humanitarian Practice,

– 9 to 48 months for Postgraduate Diploma in Humanitarian Practice,

– 6 to 24 months for Postgraduate Certificate in Humanitarian Practice.

For MSF staff there is also an option to take individual modules offered by LSTM and HCRI to enhance your professional development without the commitment to a full course of study, further enhancing the flexibility of this unique programme.
