The International Water Security Network is offering a number of scholarships covering 50% of EU/domestic tuition fees to students who demonstrate the capacity to achieve excellent results and are accepted onto the MSc Environmental Management (Water) course at UWE, Bristol.
The MSc in Environmental Management (Water) is one of a suite of postgraduate awards designed to provide dynamic individuals with the conceptual, technical and professional tools necessary to pursue careers in water management. Building on a core environmental management module which is common to all MSc courses in this group (Water, Applied GIS, Sustainable development), students then take three mandatory modules on water management.
Students have an opportunity to choose from a range of optional modules to make up the required 120 credits of taught modules. The final 60 credits involves developing an MSc Project of 10,000 words equivalent under the supervision of a specialist faculty member. Past subjects include: water-related ecosystems services, water footprinting in the construction industry, urban water demand management, and reservoir management.
The MSc programme is delivered by subject specialists from a range of disciplines and from private sector, government and non-governmental organisations.
UWE normally require an honours degree of 2:2 or above in a relevant subject. Those without a first degree but with relevant qualifications and professional practice may also be accepted.
