"Being an international student from Kenya, the MSc Environmental Management course at Reading provided the best balance between environmental and developmental modules. An interesting facet of the course is that I could tailor the module selection to suit my needs. This insight further led me to specialise in my ongoing PhD on urban water governance and the poor and I am now in my final year"
