Applications are open for students wanting to take part in the ICE WaRM-managed European Union-Australian water resources management exchange programme.

The scheme gives 90 students the opportunity to further their water-related studies overseas. Up to 45 students from ICE WaRM’s partner educators – the University of Adelaide, CQUniversity, Flinders University of South Australia, Deakin University and the University of South Australia – can apply to study for five or ten months at one of three leading European universities – the University of Dundee in Scotland, the Delft University of Technology in The Netherlands and the Technical University of Dresden in Germany.Another 45 students from Europe will be able to further their studies in Australia.

Two European students, both from The Netherlands, have started their studies at Deakin University in Victoria and the first scholarship recipient from Australia recently departed for the Netherlands to commence his studies.

Exchange students can take courses in water resources management or undertake research projects at the exchange institutions.

All courses will be presented in English.

Grant funding, consisting of a travel grant and living stipend, is available for eligible students.
