Course summary

Overview

Our Shelter after Disaster course provides you with the knowledge to understand and discuss the essential components of shelter response after a disaster.

Safe shelter is a critical need immediately after a natural disaster. This course aims to develop reflective practitioners who can combine:

  • understanding of practical strategic issues of development and emergency practice
  • an appreciation of the wider political context in which they operate.

You will learn about development and humanitarian practice. AS well as the role of the practitioner intervening in post disaster reconstruction.

We have developed good relationships with agencies working in the shelter field. Occasionally we can offer you internship possibilities within these organisations.

The course is suitable for students with technical as well as non-technical backgrounds. There is no need to have any previous knowledge in building, construction, architecture or engineering.

Career prospects

A good number of our former students have found work in the shelter sector and we are building an alumni network to help current students get in contact with organisations who work in the shelter sector.
