The programme utilises the global reputation of the UNESCO Centre within the University of Dundee - the Dundee UNESCO Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science is committed to the mission "water for all", and in its innovative taught programmes aims to develop a new generation of local water leaders. Its unique summer school programme is aimed at water resources experts who wish to supplement their expertise with water law and leadership courses with an international network of water resources specialists as students and faculty.

The UNESCO Centre achieved a high research rating in the 2008 RAE as part of the submission from the University's Law Unit of Assessment. The Unit finished among the top four in Scotland (out of 11), and among the top 19 out of 67 in the UK. All of its research was classified as being of an international standard.

Programme Content

The programme has both January and September starts. The core induction module, which spans a number of related courses, runs twice a year to cover both starts.

In the autumn semester (September – December) students will take National Water Law and two or three options.

In the spring semester (January-May), students will take Regulation of Water Services and two or three options.

The third core module, International Water Law, runs in a block in early summer and is also offered as a short course with a wide intake of participants from around the globe. Other options are also offered in intensive block format at this time (April – June).

Students will complete a dissertation or internship. Students starting in January may be able to undertake the internship during the summer months to enable them to complete within 12 months.

The Centre regularly welcomes guest lecturers from different disciplines to broaden the student experience and give them a more holistic perspective, regardless of the background of the individual student.

Careers Opportunities

As available water resources become scarcer, the need for their improved allocation and use becomes more pressing. The management of resources and the provision of services both require effective legal structures.
For students with a background in law or a related discipline, this programme will give them the specialisation and research ability to be attractive to a wide variety of employers including government departments, regulators, water services providers, international organisations and NGOs as well as academia or industry.
For those already working in water resources, this qualification will give them the expert knowledge and skills in law to advance their career, perhaps within a government department, a regulator, water services providers or a basin agency.

The emergence of the Law of the Sea Convention and establishment of Exclusive Economic Zones has given coastal states extensive and comprehensive rights and obligations over marine resources in vast areas of ocean. Wise management of ocean resources is essential if the full economic potential of these new entitlements is to be realised. To ensure the continuing biological productivity of these areas, the level and type of development of activities such as waste dumping, mineral extraction, recreation, industrial and urban growth, fisheries and aquaculture, need to be controlled, and interactions of these often conflicting activities resolved by management.

This MSc is a full-time one-year course, consisting of 9 months taught course and 3 months research project, and examined by continuous assessment. The course provides theoretical and practical training in measuring and quantifying marine resources and the effects of conflicting usage upon them. It provides a sound scientific basis on which to develop policy and make decisions on marine resource exploitation and protection around the world.

Course Aims
To broaden the student's awareness of the economic potential of the ocean, to generate an understanding of the major marine biological resources and the physical processes controlling these resources, to provide theoretical and practical training in measuring and quantifying these resources and the effects of conflicting usage upon them, to enhance those skills necessary to manage effectively the sea area of national jurisdiction, and to produce graduates with appropriate experience for developing policy and making decisions on marine resources and other marine uses for their individual countries or regions. To date, most graduates have taken up employment in the field of marine environmental protection in the UK and abroad.

You will receive training in the following major modules:

Marine Ecology Skills
Marine Fisheries
Coastal Habitat Ecology and Survey
Marine Environmental Impacts and their Assessment
