LWM is a well established international joint degree masters’ programme, fully accredited in Austria, The Netherlands and Kenya. The MSc programme structure/curriculum consists of three semesters of 4-months each, which are held in Austria (University of Natural Resources & Life Sciences, Vienna - BOKU), Kenya (Egerton University) and The Netherlands (IHE Delft), followed by a 7-months research period at one of the three partnering institutions, or your home country (to be decided in consultation with the LWM consortium).

LWM students enjoy the complementing expertise of three renowned universities and excellent networking perspectives at global level. All three study locations are world-famous tourist locations - Vienna (Austria), Nakuru/Egerton (Kenya) and Delft (The Netherlands) – hence, LWM students have the added benefit to study where others are going for sight-seeing!
