Water without Borders is a collaborative graduate diploma program that comprises three courses in addition to the degree requirements of the applicant’s parent graduate program.
The three courses should normally be completed within the first two terms of registration in the program.
Students are expected to complete all three courses that comprise the diploma program. Two of these courses, the Field Course and Practicum, entail experience of and participation in ongoing UNU-INWEH research activities.
The third course, Principles of International Policy Development, is a seminar course designed to stimulate discussion and debate of issues relevant to the relationship between research and policy formation in the context and water and health.
Throughout the year of study, students may also be invited to participate in on-going meetings, workshops or other day to day activities at UNU-INWEH. This will be at the discretion of the UNU-INWEH co-supervisor in consultation with McMaster members of the supervisory committee.
