    In the first year in Oldenburg your study program starts in October and consists of a mix of compulsory and elective modules in three broad categories: Planning, Science and Socio-Economics. During the second year in Groningen the focus will be on spatial planning, institutional design and related topics. Throughout the modules, you will be working on water and coastal management related assignments and your master thesis. You need to pass your Oldenburg year in order to be admitted to Groningen

    The first year in Oldenburg: the year is divided into two terms: "Wintersemester" and "Sommersemester". The winter term begins officially on October 1 and ends on March 31. The summer term begins on April 1 and ends on September 30. However, the lecture period only runs from mid-October until mid-February and from mid-April until the middle/end of July.

    My understanding of water- and coastal management and infrastructure planning helps me to be a better advisor in my professional environment

    I started in 2014 with the Double Degree MSc programme Water and Coastal Management at the Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg (Germany) and the University of Groningen.

    The combination of issues with regard to water (quality and quantity) and changes in infrastructure systems, that become increasingly pressing in the near feature, were for me key drivers to start with this program. I think what makes this program unique is the interrelatedness of these issues along with the international experiences that this program inhibits (studying and living in two countries, multiple international field-trips). The field trips to the UK, Estonia and the many practical (though scientific) oriented courses were main characteristics of the program that made it very attractive and enjoyable to me. Present, my understanding of water- and coastal management and infrastructure planning helps me to be a better advisor in my professional environment.

    Jorian Wals finished his double degree MSc programme Water and Coastal Management in 2016. He currently works as advisor Contracts and Procurement at Witteveen+Bos Consulting Engineers.

    The Master perfectly prepared me for the interdisciplinary and intercultural work setting I am in now

    The Double Degree Master Programme Water and Coastal Management offered me an ideal opportunity to pursue my interest in 'flood resilient cities', after I did my Bachelors in urban planning.

    I really appreciated the great mix between natural sciences (e.g. ecology and geo-morphology) and social sciences (e.g. sustainability management and spatial planning) that the programme offered. Although there was a clear study programme, it was flexible enough to follow my own interests and trajectory. A clear benefit of the programme is that you get to know two different (research) cultures and meet people from all over the world. I absolutely enjoyed the many projects and case studies that we did together. In these group works, I learned most from my fellow students, who often had a completely different background than me. Overall, the Master perfectly prepared me for the interdisciplinary and intercultural work setting I am in now.
