UNESCO/IHE - Tailored i-learning for sanitation professionals
The Graduate Professional Diploma Program (GPDP) program is a new educational product of UNESCO-IHE that disseminates sanitation and sanitary engineering knowledge to professionals without the means, time or interest to pursue an MSc degree in Sanitation and Sanitary Engineering, or with an MSc Degree in a related field and a wish to specialize professionally. The program consists of a sequence of four or five online courses, regular short courses or a combination. The number of credit points varies from 3 to 6 per course. The minimum study load for obtaining a diploma is 20 ECTS, which equals a workload of 560 hours. The online courses can be followed part-time, without interrupting a daytime career. In order to ensure that the program fits the personal circumstances of the applicant, courses will be selected and a personal study plan will be designed in collaboration with a study advisor. The total duration of the program depends on this study plan, with a minimum of 1.5 and a maximum of 4.5 years. Several new GPDPs are currently under development.
