Admission requirements

The Flood Risk Management programme has the following admission requirements:


  • Proof that you have successfully accomplished*) a first degree of higher education equivalent to a B.Sc. degree (equivalent to 180 credit points according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS))

  • A good final mark as shown by a Grade Point Average (GPA) of at least B/B+ (US System) or a classification of at least 2nd upper (UK system).

  • A bachelor or comparable degree in one of the following subjects: civil or environmental engineering, geosciences, environmental sciences, limnology, oceanography, geography, geology or natural resources.

  • Academic knowledge of mathematics and water related subjects

  • Evidence of qualification in one of the internationally-recognised English language tests*). More information on the English language requirements can be found here.



Applications may already be submitted before the first degree of higher education (usually B.Sc.) has been successfully finished, if at least 120 ECTS of the programme have been successfully completed. If the applicant meets all of the other admission requirements, admission can be granted on the condition that the first degree of higher education must be successfully finished no later than August 15 of the year the program starts. Proof of graduation needs to be submitted before August 15 in case a scholarship has been awarded. In case this proof will not be received, a possible scholarship offer will be cancelled.

If you do not have your English test results available before 8 January 2024, you still have the possibility to upload them before 29 February 2024 at the latest. Your application will then still be considered for a scholarship.


Possessing the minimum qualification mentioned above does not guarantee admission. CV and transcripts are used to decide whether the applicant can be admitted to the programme or not.
