Sustainable Water Management PGCert

This scheme combines modules in hydrology, water quality and ecology with a research project tailored towards developing skills relevant to a career in the water sector, either in the UK or mainland Europe.

You will be taught by world experts in the field, including staff from the Centre for Ecology and Hydrology (within the Lancaster Environment Centre) and industry leader JBA Consulting.

Your specialised project will benefit from our strong research links with organisations such as Dwr Cymru Welsh Water, United Utilities, JBA Consulting, the Environment Agency, Defra and the UK Government Research Councils. Some projects involve placements within the organisations.

The PgCert provides an opportunity for postgraduate learning and professional development for those who are unable to commit to a full MSc programme. The award requires the successful completion of four 15 credit modules, selected from the modules available on the MSc course.
