Every year we work closely with schools and colleges both local to Manchester and further afield, whether that’s through open days, conferences like our Careers in Humanitarianism Day, or through sharing educational resources.

While all plans for the upcoming year are being finalised to ensure they’re COVID secure, please get in touch for an HCRI representative to speak to your students (virtually), or to register your interest for upcoming events:

Careers in Humanitarianism Day: Outreach Session

Our annual Careers Day holds an exclusive information session for sixth form students interested in studying with us. The session includes mini introductions to modules from our Lecturers, and current students sharing their experience and advice. If you'd like to catch-up on the sessions, either individually or to watch as a class, you can do so via the following Youtube video:

Teaching Resources

You can freely access ‘After Maria’, a graphic novella by our Lecturer Dr Gemma Sou, exploring how low-income Puerto Rican families recovered from the impacts of Hurricane Maria. The resource also includes:

  • information about research on disaster impacts, disaster recovery and media representations of disasters
  • discussion points
  • the importance of graphically illustrating research
  • further reading
