MSc Global Energy and Climate Policy

Duration: One calendar year (full time). Two or three years (part-time).

Minimum Entry Requirements: A minimum upper second class honours degree (or equivalent). Candidates with a lower class degree but degree-relevant work experience may be considered.

Start of programme: September intake only

Mode of Attendance: Full Time or Part Time

Who is this programme for?

The use of energy – electricity generation, transportation, heating/cooling and industrial consumption – is the most important driver of climate change by far. Effectively addressing this urgent global challenge, therefore, requires transformational changes in the ways we produce, consume and govern energy. More than two decades of political contestation have shown that a supportive policy environment – meaningful and consistent domestic laws and regulation underpinned by ambitious international treaties – is the only way to affect these changes, develop alternatives to emissions-intensive fossil fuels and transition economies around the world onto a secure, low-carbon and climate-friendly footing....
