This MSc will prepare you as a functional hydrogeologist to meet the needs of: industry; regulators; non-governmental organisations; government; consultants.
The degree is accredited as meeting the requirements for Further Learning for a Chartered Engineer (CEng) for candidates who have already acquired a partial CEng accredited undergraduate first degree.
Normally, a first or upper second-class Honours degree from a UK university (or equivalent overseas qualification) in earth sciences, environmental sciences, civil engineering, environmental engineering, water engineering or other related disciplines.
Lower degree classifications might be considered if there is strength elsewhere (for example, relevant work experience, excellent final project/dissertation, very strong academic letter of reference, very strong application statement linking with career goals).
