Below the courses of the programme are described.
The course work period is common for all students. After this, for the case studies and research project, students choose a specialisation: Environmental Management, Energy Management or Water Governance.
Next, students enter the case study period. In this period students work on projects that are either taken from or are based on real life situations. Additionally, students start or continue the preparation of their research proposal with their tutor.
Finally, students enter the research project which is a period of approximately four months (20 EC). This project can be executed either at the university or at an external host organisation. Students also have the opportunity to do their final research project abroad. The decision usually depends on the future career plans of the students. Both the preparation and execution phase are supervised.
The programme has a certain degree of flexibility in execution, to match the timetables of both students and lecturers.
