Applicants who do not possess a degree in the mentioned field, should have water management and governance related experience, motivation/recommendations, especially those applicants who do not have water related courses in their undergraduate degree. 

Environmental Science programme

  • Environmental Science and Technology: engineering (civil, chemical, agricultural, or environmental), natural sciences, environmental sciences, chemistry, agriculture, geology.
  • Environmental Planning and Management: engineering (civil, chemical, agricultural, or environmental), natural sciences, environmental sciences, chemistry, agriculture, geology, geography, environmental economics.
  • Limnology and Wetland Management: engineering (civil, chemical, agricultural, or environmental), natural sciences, environmental science, ecology, biology, chemistry, agriculture, geology.
  • Applied Aquatic Ecology for Sustainability: engineering (civil, chemical, agricultural, or environmental), natural sciences, environmental science, ecology, biology, chemistry, agriculture, geology.

Sanitation programme

All bachelor degrees with the correct motivation may be conditionally accepted (provisional admission will only be given after passing the entrance exam and, if applicable, sufficient English test results).
