The Policy & Practice of Climate Change & Water

UEA's Call for Applicants: MSc in Water Security and International Development

The Water Security Research Centre at the University of East Anglia is accepting applications for the September 2018 intake of the MSc in Water Security and International Development.

This 12-month MSc programme offers world-class education in water security policy and science, and is as challenging as it is rewarding. By the end of it, students will have the latest knowledge and tools necessary to address a wide variety of water-related challenges that are at the very heart of developmental and environmental objectives.

All MSc students will be able to network with and draw upon the expertise of our networks, including the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, International Development UEA, the Low Carbon Innovation Fund the Climatic Research Unit, the Anglian Water Centre, and the London Water Research Group.

The course prepares students for employment in a wide range of areas, including non-governmental organisations (NGOs), government aid agencies, and multilaterial organisations. Students who have completed the course now work at WaterAid, WaterWitness, WWF, Oxfam, or UN and other international agencies. Several others have gone on to do PhDs (at e.g. Oregon State University or Strathclyde).

Norwich is one of the most vibrant and attractive cities in Europe, and being only a short train journey from London and Cambridge offers an affordable place to study and stay connected.

*Field Trip to Shenzhen, South China (Silicon Valley in China)! The 2018-2019 cohort will be the first to enjoy our 7-10 day field trip to China in the spring of 2019. With the UEA WSRC’s partners at Southern University of Science and Technology, we will explore water, environmental and development issues throughout South China – all costs are inclusive!

The MSc is coordinated by Prof Mark Zeitoun, and draws on over 30 water scientists based at UEA and specialist interdisciplinary teaching staff at the forefront of water research.
