University accreditation does not apply to courses from this institution


UNESCO-IHE is the largest international graduate water education facility in the world.
The Institute offers a unique combination of applied, scientific and participatory research in water engineering combined with natural sciences, social sciences and management and governance. Since its establishment the Institute has played an instrumental role in developing the capacities of water sector organizations in the Global South, not least by strengthening the efforts of other universities and research centres to increase the knowledge and skills of professionals working in the water sector.

UNESCO-IHE carries out educational, research and capacity development activities that complement and reinforce each other in the broad fields of water engineering, water management, environment, sanitation, and governance.

The Institute confers fully accredited MSc degrees, and PhD degrees in collaboration with partner universities.
