Master programme Water Technology


Student facilities

Students of the joint degree Water Technology will be registered at Wageningen University as well as at the University of Twente and the University of Groningen. This means that they have access to and can use all facilities that form part of these three universities. Since the programme is not located at one of these three universities, a number of studies related facilities of importance to the students will be provided in cooperation with other institutes and local government in Leeuwarden.

Educational building

Students of the joint degree Water Technology spend most of their time in Leeuwarden at the WaterCampus, educational part (classes) at the Van Hall Larenstein Institute (VHL); research part (thesis) at research institute Wetsus.
The Wetsus Academy has its own classroom, office and multifunctional space for a cold or warm lunch, studying and groupwork. In all places there is access to free WiFi.
During the MSc thesis, students get a desk and access to the facilities and the research hall with modern equipment of Wetsus. 


Library facilities

Students have access to the scientific libraries of the three involved universities immediately from the start of the programme. In fact, they have access to a goldmine of information sources. These libraries give access to a wide range of national and international databases, electronic and print books, journals and more. Although the physical facilities of these libraries are located at some distance of Leeuwarden, all three libraries are digital ones. In town students are welcome in the scientific library of Tresoar. Tresoar also offers students a quiet environment in case they want to study.



The Van Hall Larenstein Institute has a canteen with a broad assortment of warm and cold snacks, an outdoor place, access to internet and seating areas.
