22 September 2015

UCL announces scholarships to bring tomorrow’s energy and resources industry leaders to Adelaide.

Applications for the prestigious UCL Santos Scholarship are now open.

UCL has today, with the support of major industry sponsor Santos, launched a number of scholarships for February 2016 enrollment in its Masters of Energy and Resources Management.

The university, which recently entered a partnership with UniSA for the Future Industries Institute and signaled UCL’s long-term presence in South Australia, will offer a range of Santos Scholarships in 2016.

UCL Head of Department, Professor Magnus Nyden, said: “We are thrilled to be offering these scholarships which will attract the most gifted students in the energy and resources industry to study with UCL here in Adelaide.”

Professor Nyden continued: “The world is in rapid change and energy and resources is at the forefront. How are we best going to manage our mineral resources such as iron, copper and uranium? How are we best going to manage our energy resources like wind, oil, gas, solar and nuclear? What is the best balance for increasing jobs, business opportunities and our health in a sustainable South Australia, Australia and a sustainable world?

It’s an exciting time for the energy and resources industry.”

Each Scholarship is worth up to $114,500 over two years (comprising full tuition plus a AUD$50,000 tax-free stipend).

Applications can be completed through the UCL Australia Msc page. The deadline for applications is 31st October 2015. All applicants are encouraged to read through the 2015 regulations.

All applicants must further answer this year’s question:

“According to the IPCC Fourth Assessment Report ‘most of the observed increase in global average temperatures since the mid-20th century is very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic greenhouse gas concentrations.’ What do you think is the most promising mechanism to reduce greenhouse gas emissions?” Discuss this statement.
