Study at UCL

UCL brings a unique internationally connected educational experience to Australia with a specialist focus on education in the global critical field of energy and resources. UCL Australia, is focused on education and research in sustainable management and use of minerals, energy and natural resources; all of which are crucial for global development.

In the field of natural resources, UCL Australia focusses on the management of petroleum, water, renewable energy, nuclear and uranium, marine environments, minerals and the issue of climate change.

Full-time students

For full-time students, the Master’s programme is undertaken over two years. In Year 1, students undertake eight courses designed to broaden their understanding of the energy and resources sectors.

In Year 2 students can opt for one of two streams, both designed to enable students to integrate theory and practice through demonstration of a substantial research project.

Research stream – students undertake an industry-focused research project.
Coursework stream – students undertake a combination of four taught courses and two short research projects.

In 2015 UCL FES and UniSA signed an agreement committing the two institutions to work together in the Future Industries Institute (FII) developing teaching and research in London and South Australia, in fields that include: minerals processing, advanced manufacturing, sustainable future energy production and protection and care of the environment.

We are currently in the process of finalising exciting, new, dual-hemisphere programmes which we will be releasing shortly. In the meantime UCL has released its first dual hemisphere programme an MSc in Global Management of Natural Resources
