    The global energy system is undergoing a process of rapid change. Escalating demand, constraints on supplies, increasing energy prices, regulatory pressures to reduce carbon emissions, changing demographics and patterns of energy use and supply, mean that industry, economies and societies face complex challenges and uncertainties that could become more extreme in the future.

    Both government and industry need to be able to understand and adapt to this changing context, managing these transformations where possible, exploiting emerging opportunities, and acting to reduce risk. The changing energy landscape requires professionals with a global knowledge of the complex technical, economic, geopolitical and policy issues facing the global energy system.

    The MSc in Global Energy Management is aimed at producing high flying energy professionals. Students will gain a rigorous analytical training and in-depth real world knowledge of the global energy system in all its facets, giving them an unrivalled edge in the energy job market.

    The degree is designed around five core taught classes. Students may also take a summer internship and attend forums delivered throughout the year, the Global Energy Forum, delivered by leading outside experts in energy-related fields.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.
