Each year, more than 200 students join our courses, each one of them bringing their own unique experience.
In our classes we have doctors and nurses, lawyers and communications experts, project managers and emergency coordinators, all committed to improve the global humanitarian response.
Our student body reflects the geographical, cultural, professional diversity of the humanitarian sector, and approximately half of our students come from low- and middle-income countries.
In 2020, we started offering some of courses to graduate students with relevant voluntary or work experience. We want our classes to be a unique learning experience, where both experienced and newly graduated students come together, learn from each other and use their similarities and differences to achieve a greater understanding of the humanitarian sector.
All our courses are student-focused, hands-on, interactive, and involve an engaging and supportive relationship with our experienced and professional teaching team and leading experts in humanitarian action, with many esteemed lecturers from accredited humanitarian organisations and academic institutes.
The flexible, modular structure of our teaching programme allows students to adapt their learning to their schedules.
Our students enjoy a unique opportunity to join a vibrant intercultural community, fostering intellectual exchange among other humanitarian professionals, researchers in humanitarian action, and experts in the field.
“I structured – destructured, and restructured my opinions based on other experiences, contrasting my view with theirs was part of my own learning process”.

Most courses include visits to relevant international humanitarian organizations, where students can engage with high-level practitioners and experts in their disciplines.
Our alumni community ensures that these connections are maintained and developed after completion of studies, giving graduates the advantage of a strong, supportive and global network of humanitarian professionals.
