Forced Migration


This module is one of a series of building-blocks self-learning modules designed for students within the Heilbrunn Department of Population and Family Health.

Students are expected to complete these modules in advance of their entry into a course of studies within the department.

Satisfactory completion of the module requires passage of an online examination with a score of 80% or better. Should you receive a score below 80%, please contact Robin Mangini at, so that your test may be reset.

It should take you approximately three hours to complete the module. The outside links included in the module are for your information and interest. For the exam, you are only responsible for the information provided in the module itself. Although there is no time limit on the exam, CourseWorks times out after three hours. You should plan to complete the test in one sitting; it does not allow you to save some answers and return later to finish.
