Taking this exchange programme amounts to following the first semester of our 1-year short degree programme Aquatic Ecosystem Analysis. You will be following two parallel minors with lectures, training sessions and field visits that provide you with expertise in aquatic ecology and water systems. In each minor you will have ample opportunity to put what you have learned into practice when you work on a professional task for an official client.
Minor Water Quality Analysis
This is the ‘biotic’ part of the programme, in which you will describe the ecological status of a Dutch water body, according to the Water Framework Directive (WFD), and analyze the results in contrast with outcomes in another EU country.
Minor Water System Analysis
Although this is the ‘abiotic’ part of the programme, it links to biota. You will study possible future changes for a water system in the EU to be used as a preparation study for area redevelopment. Here you will look into the geophysical features of the system.
