Description

The global energy system is undergoing a process of rapid change. Escalating demand, constraints on supplies, increasing energy prices, regulatory pressures to reduce carbon emissions, changing demographics and patterns of energy use and supply, mean that industry, economies and societies face complex challenges and uncertainties that could become more extreme in the future.

Both government and industry need to be able to understand and adapt to this changing context, managing these transformations where possible, exploiting emerging opportunities, and acting to reduce risk. The changing energy landscape requires professionals with a global knowledge of the complex technical, economic, geopolitical and policy issues facing the global energy system.

The MSc in Global Energy Management is aimed at producing high flying energy professionals. Students will gain a rigorous analytical training and in-depth real world knowledge of the global energy system in all its facets, giving them an unrivalled edge in the energy job market.

English not your first language?

In addition to academic qualifications, you must also be able to show that you have a sufficient grasp of English. If English is not your first language you will need to provide evidence of your proficiency before you can begin the course, and you are strongly advised to take the IELTS or the TOEFL test examination. The University's general entry requirements are IELTS 6.5 and TOEFL 90-95 (internet based test). Please note, however, that some courses may require a higher test result. You should check at the time of application what standard of English Language proficiency is required for your course of interest.

More information about IELTS (International English Language Testing Service) can be obtained from the local British Council office in your country, or by writing directly to the Examinations Unit, British Council, c/o Enterprises, 10 Spring Gardens, London. SW1A 2BN.

You can find out more about TOEFL (Test of English as a Foreign Language) from the American Embassy in your own country, or by contacting the Education Testing Service, PO Box 899, Princeton, New Jersey 08540, USA.

The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.
