Each module has 5 ECTS credits and the total selection by each student should be 30 credits. The modules available are: Introduction to flood risk management (I and II, compulsory); meteorology and hydrology; climate change; GIS and remote sensing; geodesy; ecology; statistics; hydromechanics, and hydraulic engineering. A fieldtrip to flood-prone areas is organised.
During the second semester at UNESCO-IHE (Delft) the students follow the following modules: computational intelligence and control; river basin and groundwater modelling; river flood modelling; urban flood modelling and disaster management; flood risk management, systems analysis and planning. In this latter module, participants have additional choices of a number of different subjects, ranging from flood early warning systems and operational management, software integration of systems, to water resources management and strategic planning. On real case studies students learn how to apply and integrate various types of modelling and decision support systems. An international fieldtrip is offered as well.
During the third semester the students move first to UPC (Barcelona) to earn 20 credits from four modules: debris flow and flash floods; impacts, conflicts and risks of coastal flooding; effects of climate change and global warming; weather radars for flood forecasting (including fieldtrips). The last part of the third semester is conducted at Ljubljana where the students earn 10 ECTS studying spatial planning, and socio-economic and institutional framework for flood risk management.
During the thesis phase the students, while remaining associated with one partner, may occasionally carry out the research together with an industrial partner (which may be an Associated Member or not). The mobility scheme is presented in the following figure.

The Erasmus Mundus Programme in Flood Risk Management has the following admission requirements:
* Proof that the applicant has successfully accomplished a first degree of higher education equivalent to a B.Sc. degree (equivalent to 180 credit points according to the European Credit Transfer System (ECTS)) with a good final mark in civil or environmental engineering, geosciences, environmental sciences, geography, natural resources management, limnology, oceanography, geology or other similar subjects.
* Applicants who are required to provide proof of English language proficiency who do not yet possess the results of the test can apply for admission and scholarship now, however, the ultimate deadline that the test result should be in our possession is 1 May 2015. Those applicants will also be taken into consideration for scholarship award and can be selected for scholarship or placed on the reserve list. If, no sufficient English test results have been received by 1 May 2015, the scholarship offer will be cancelled and next candidate from the reserve list will be selected.
