Overview

This MSc Sustainability and Water Security from University of Dundee will be taught in close cooperation with the University's world-leading Centre for Water Law, Policy and Science (a UNESCO category 2 Water Centre).

Securing access to clean water for all is a Sustainable Development Goal and one the most important sustainability questions worldwide.
