About

The Hydrology programme offered by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam is part of the VU-UvA cooperation: Amsterdam Water Science.

Overview

The Hydrology programme offered by the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam aims at educating students to understand the complex interactions between hydrological processes and the relation with society, and how this may change under future global change:

  • How does the hydrological system function and how does it relate with climate, vegetation and society? 
  • How can we ensure there is enough water available for every person?
  • Can we ensure water quality for agriculture, biodiversity and drinking water? 
  • How can we minimize the impact of extreme flood events in dense urban areas? 

Career prospects

  • Water is one of earth's natural resources that we simply cannot do without. In addition, safe and clean water is becoming increasingly scarce as demand continues to rise all over the world. 
  • This means that highly trained water scientists will always be able to find suitable employment.

During the Master’s day, you can also meet our (international) alumni during several workshops. In these sessions they will tell you more about career opportunities after finishing your Master’s degree.
