Durham University has opted into the TEF and received a Gold award.
The MSc in Energy and Society is an innovative postgraduate course looking at uses of energy in socio-technical perspectives. The course gives you a holistic understanding of energy issues, approaches to transition, technologies in practice, and the politics of energy developments. Graduates have pursued careers in the energy industry, in consultancy, in government and in community energy organisations. Using ideas from practice theory, notions of integrated energy systems, energy development and social science approach to energy, it draws together diverse disciplinary approaches and ensures that you can speak and read across disciplinary boundaries. It will be of interest to engineers seeking to understand how and why technologies succeed or fail, to social scientists who want to improve their understanding of energy developments and to a broad range of graduates with an interest in today's energy issues.The full-time course consists of two terms of taught courses, including teaching from experts across the University and invited guest speakers, during which you are introduced to a broad range of energy issues, disciplinary approaches and analytic strategies. You will engage in live projects', and explore a range of research questions and methods in preparation for a dissertation involving the design, development and implementation of an independent research project. You will also work closely with academic staff and have the opportunity to become involved in active research projects.The course draws on leading experts in energy studies at Durham from Anthropology, Engineering, Geography, Earth Sciences and other departments. The two core taught modules are delivered via intensive block-teaching, and there is also a field study module for applied team-research.

Around 4,500 students travel from over 150 countries to study in Durham each year and the university takes part in a number of international schemes including the Erasmus, Exchange and Study Abroad and Science Without Borders. As well as the normal services open to any student, there are also specific groups such as the International Students groups in the Student Union to help those from outside the UK integrate with their new surroundings. The colleges also have advice and help on hand for students in a range of topics including social care matters. During most of their time at the university, students are associated with a college and many live there for their first year then chose to "live-out" for the second before having both options for their remaining time. Colleges provide common rooms for students with other facilities including computer rooms, libraries and gyms. Most of the colleges have their own sports teams that take part in collegiate leagues as well as their own theatre company and even an orchestra. There are around 130 clubs and organisations across campus including special interest, service organisations and those involved with student government. The Durham Student's Union provides funding for these along with the Fresher's Ball and other social events. There are also some 45 volunteer projects to be involved with in the surrounding area.
