The programme is focused on the core area of Water Law, and includes teaching to enable students to study law at Masters Level. Students can choose options in other areas of natural resources law, or related disciplines such as economics.

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.

Methods of Teaching & Assessment

The Graduate School utilises a wide variety of teaching and assessment for on-campus modules. These include lectures, seminars, and workshops. Face to face teaching is supplemented by materials provided through the virtual learning environment. Assessments include examinations, individual research papers, presentations and role plays. Module handbooks supplement programme handbooks and provide detailed information on teaching schedules and reading as well as assessments. 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.

Student Quotes

“I was attracted to the MRes course at Swansea as the subject matter was just what I was looking for.

I previously worked as a Cardiovascular Research Assistant at the Murdoch Children’s Research Institute in Melbourne. My employer, the Head of the Cardiology Department, encouraged me to develop skills in modelling as this has a lot of potential to help answer some current questions and controversies in the field. I was looking for a Master’s level course that could provide me with computational modelling skills that I could apply to blood flow problems, particularly those arising from congenital heart disease.

The College of Engineering at Swansea is certainly a good choice. In the computational modelling area, it is one of the leading centres in the world (they wrote the textbook, literally). A lot of people I knew in Swansea initially came to study for a couple of years, but then ended up never leaving. I can see how that could happen.”

Jonathan Mynard, MRes Computer Modelling in Engineering, then PhD at the University of Melbourne, currently post-doctoral fellow at the Biomedical Simulation Laboratory, University of Toronto, Canada
