Over deze opleiding

The course emphasizes multidisciplinary and practical aspects of Natural Resources Management, especially in the fields of Forestry, Environmental Science and Sustainable Agriculture & Food Security.

In many African countries, the desire to meet the livelihood needs of people has led to unsound exploitation and management of natural resources. The ensuing environmental problems are numerous and commonly known: deforestation, land degradation, depletion of resources and pollution. Climate change and its direct causes, previously mostly a concern of industrialised countries, is now showing its effects world-wide and African countries are not exempted. To mitigate environmental problems, improved natural resource management is a major task, confronting planners and decision makers at all levels. This requires a good understanding of the complex factors involved as well as sound knowledge of the international environmental agenda. To develop the critical mass with this expertise, the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST) in Kumasi, Ghana, and the Faculty of Geo-Information Science and Earth Observation (ITC) of the University of Twente in Enschede, the Netherlands, have jointly developed an MSc degree course which combines sustainable management of natural resources with geo-information and earth observation tools.

The tuition fee includes all expenses necessary to offer our students a comprehensive educational experience from start to end of selected course. These include registration fees, course materials, course excursions and access to research data and equipment. Fieldwork is paid out of general means as well as student personal funds, and varies per course and research theme. The cost of the residence permit is set by the Dutch Government and is subject to periodic increases. ITC applies on the applicants' behalf for the residence permit, therefore the applicant is invoiced for this amount in advance .Dutch Immigration Service (IND) provides an estimate of monthly accommodation and living costs in the Netherlands. IND requires that ITC guarantees on behalf of the applicant that s/he has adequate funding to cover accommodation and living cost. All applicants must therefore provide evidence of funds by covering full payment of accommodation and living costs prior to start of course. The living allowance has to be paid in advance, after which students receive a refund upon arrival. This refund is after deduction of hotel accommodation expenses and can be used for food and out-of-pocket expenses. It is paid out either on a monthly basis or per course module, depending on the type of course you have registered for.All course participants traveling to ITC are required by law to hold full medical insurance. The short stay visa to travel to the Netherlands will not be issued unless insurance cover can be shown to the embassy. ITC arranges a comprehensive insurance cover in advance of arrival at the rates shown above. Applicants who are European Union citizens holding their own medical insurance must be able to provide evidence of comparable insurance. If provided and approved by ITC, these students are exempt from purchasing insurance through ITC.The tuition fee and additional costs are to be fully paid in advance to cover the total duration of the cost. Applicants for the MSc, Master, Postgraduate or Diploma course can pay their tuition expenses in two installment periods. For more information on fees and payment, please check our website www.itc.nl The fees do not include the education at our partnerinstitute in Ghana.
