We are excited to announce a new partnership between Project Trust and the Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute (HCRI) at the University of Manchester.
In September 2016 HCRI launched the new BSc International Disaster Management and Humanitarian Response, a unique degree connecting global challenges with making a difference.
HCRI is particularly excited about recruiting Project Trust volunteers because of the experiences and transferable skills they develop during their year overseas. It therefore accepts the Project Trust-issued One Award in Global Citizenship and Volunteering in place of an A-level in its degree offers and admissions criteria, and continues to work with Project Trust on co-organised education events and placement opportunities.
Dr Lisa Ficklin, Programme Director at the University of Manchester and Project Trust Returned Volunteer (South Africa 1997/98), said:
“We are incredibly excited to be partnering with Project Trust in offers for our BSc in International Disaster Management and Humanitarian Response. The degree focuses on bridging the gap between development and humanitarian action for students wanting a to make a difference with careers in addressing major global challenges and with the world’s most vulnerable people. Project Trust Volunteers develop highly prized and transferable skills, recognised through the completion of the One Awards accreditation in Global Volunteering and Citizenship. This resourcefulness, resilience, and awareness of different international contexts, and the complexities and challenges within, make Project Trust Volunteers extremely desirable students for this programme and as such we recognise this One Awards accreditation in our admissions criteria.”
