Did you know?


HCRI is home to UK-Med, an NGO that provides international emergency humanitarian medical assistance to incidents worldwide.

Our community includes medical students and humanitarian professionals from a range of backgrounds.

You’ll have the opportunity to engage first-hand with the people, projects and organisations that shape humanitarian, global health, disaster management, conflict response and intervention strategy around the world.


I have great respect for HCRI's academics and for their critical engagement with the world of humanitarian practice.
