The information provided on this page was correct at the time of publication (November 2019). For complete and up-to-date information about this course, please visit the relevant University of Oxford course page via The MSc in Energy Systems covers technical, societal and political aspects of this dynamic subject and will provide you with an understanding of how to develop innovative solutions. The MSc in Energy Systems augments world-leading research from the Department of Engineering Science with contributions from the Departments of Physics, Materials Science, Chemistry and the School of Geography and the Environment. The course is designed to be accessible by those who have a first degree in either engineering, the physical sciences, or geography and will be taught using a modular framework to ensure that students are able to progress at their own predetermined speed. The course structure is comprised of a combination of teaching methods, to provide a stimulating learning environment: taught modules, a case study project, fieldwork (industrial visit), and a dissertation. The taught modules are divided into three different core themes: Resources, Systems and Services, exploring the production and supply of energy and the societal and political implications involved. Each module is taught over 1 or 2 weeks, depending on the subject, and will be delivered in a lecture format. These modules will also utilise innovative methods such as project based and student led peer-to-peer learning with ample opportunity for discussion. Teaching modules will be closely aligned with current research within the University and each module will be split into four units. Course teaching is concentrated in the first two terms of the academic year, leaving the final term for non-taught course components. Other elements include three extended assessed activities: a group-based industrial or public sector study project; a whole cohort output based on a specific energy-relevant visit; and an individual 15,000 word dissertation. This approach is expected to provide students with an optimal balance of working with sector stakeholders to develop understanding from taught elements while broadening personal horizons. Further information about studying part time There are two part-time variants (2 years and 3 years in duration) to allow those who may be constrained through personal circumstance, or those who wish to participate whilst still in full time employment, to attend. For students on the two year variant, students will study two modules and then have a gap week. For students on the three year variant, students will attend one module approximately every three weeks. The fees for each part-time variant are adjusted to reflect the amount of time that each student will spend in active study.
