Ranking and student feedback
This online and distance learning programme will provide you with a detailed understanding of the transformative change in energy systems now under way around the world and equips you with the knowledge and skills needed to play a part in it. It treats energy and climate change policy as inextricably linked, taking an integrated approach to the study of the two fields. Case studies are drawn from around the world, accounting for different conditions in developed, newlyindustrialised and developing country contexts. The programme’s focus is on policy and policymaking in the energy and climate space as the key to enabling change and creating the requisite legal and regulatory environment within which the low-carbon energy system of the future can develop and grow. It introduces students to the key energy sources, their economic and technical bases, their trade and how they are regulated. It further analyses energy and climate governance at the international level, and discusses the geopolitics of energy. The degree offers options for specialisation through its elective modules, including an in-depth exploration of sustainability and climate finance.
