Modules on offer include: - Catchment Hydrology and Assessment - Catchment Protection (field course) - Contaminated Land and Remediation - Environmental Management - Forecasting and Extreme Event Response - Groundwater Resources and Protection - Integrated Systems for Sustainable Urban Drainage - Lake Ecology - Modelling Environmental Processes
I chose to study at LEC as it provided continuity from my enjoyable time at undergraduate level at Lancaster University. The Sustainable Water Management course provided a good platform to address my interests in the various aspects of water management and a way of gaining the understanding and knowledge needed to be able to work in the water sector. Having enjoyed learning about the integrative and vast aspects of the varying water resources, both social and physical, I was able to achieve my goal of securing a job within the water industry. I am currently employed on the Dŵr Cymru Welsh Water graduate scheme training to be an Asset Manager.
An upper second class honours degree, or its equivalent, in a relevant subject. We can also consider applicants with a lower second class (or equivalent) if they have relevant work experience (including voluntary work).
