Flexible blended learning

Study at your own pace, alongside your commitments

The LEAP programme has been designed to fit alongside professional and personal commitments, giving you the flexibility to spread out your modules if needed.

Experienced online and blended learning providers

Our lecturers are experienced in creating an online and blended teaching environment. You will have access to discussion boards, video calls and downloadable resources.

Teaching and learning support

Students receive the same level of teaching and support as our students on campus. You’ll be a fully registered student of the University of Manchester and Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine and all of the support and services that we provide will be available to you – though you may access them in a different way to on-campus students.

Benefit from face-to-face interaction

Our short face-to-face teaching periods in Manchester and Liverpool provide you with the opportunity to network with fellow students and access world-class facilities.

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.
