Studying in Delft has so far proved to be one of my best academic experiences ever.

Kenya Sub-Saharan Africa

What made you decide to study this particular programme?
I decided to study this programme basing on my educational background in science and the need to develop my skills and knowledge in my professional career as a water quality analyst.

Can you say something about studying in Delft/the Netherlands? 
Studying in Delft/The Netherlands has so far proved to be one of my best academic experiences ever. The Dutch community is one of the best in Europe to interact with. The people here make you feel like you are at home away from the real home because of their friendly culture.

What kind of professional background do you need to succeed in this programme?
You need a background in a science related field. Especially a background in environmental science is useful.

Why should new students/water professional choose this programme?
New students should choose this programme because it will help them expand their international scope, while building their knowledge and skills in water quality related issues. It is like you will attain a level where you can tackle any water related problem given the chance and time.

Do you have any advice for new students?
I strongly advise new students/water professionals, not to waste any more time, go for UNESCO-IHE and re-discover your hidden potential as an international water professional.

What are you going to do once back home?
I can't wait to put into practice the skills and knowledge I have gained so far at UNESCO-IHE. I feel like I have all the solutions to water to help develop the water sector in my water company and Kenya my country.
