The deadline for applications is 11 September, 2017. Full and partial scholarships are available to candidates from developing countries. 

According to the “Observatoire de la vie étudiante” of the University of Geneva, this course was the best online course offered in 2016. Some of the participants in the last edition said:

“…this course is really helping me see things in a new light (…). I have learnt a lot and I am continuing to learn. I have soon to submit a memo to my director to show him the importance of IWL and the shortcomings of Togo in the domain.” Richard Barry, Directorate of Water Resources, Togo

“The training used different participatory approaches such as webinars, assignments and quiz which tested factual knowledge and analytical perspective of the subject matter. The support afforded to me, both technical as well as the answers from the expert, was superb. Therefore, I have no hesitation in recommending the course to any person whatsoever.” Sarah Vranckx, Ministry of International Relations and Cooperation, Namibia 

The online course was developed with the support of the Center for Continuing and Distance Education of the University of Geneva, and in partnership with DiploFoundation. It is funded by the Global Water Programme of the Swiss Agency for Development and Cooperation (SDC).
