Two semesters in Groningen

Examination regulations

Two semesters in Groningen

During the second academic year in Groningen you will attend courses covering Environmental Planning, Water Quality and International Comparative Planning Research and Practice. Since Water and Coastal Management is a Double-Degree-Programme, you will attend mostly mandatory modules from the MSc Environmental and Infrastructure Planning. Thus, the second year is structured differently from the first year and is highly focused on planning.
