Course content

Today more than ever, there is a growing demand for versatile managers in the globalised natural resources and commodities industries. These industries rely on the close collaboration of scientists, engineers, analysts, financiers and investors. An integrated understanding of resource genesis, development, production, supply and socio-environmental footprint is no longer desirable; it is essential.

UCL is consistently placed in the global top 20 in a wide range of world rankings and in the latest Research Excellence Framework (REF 2014) UCL was the top-rated UK university for research strength.

The MSc developed out of the European-funded research project ShaleXenvironmenT (in which UCL was an academic partner). There is an increasing demand for managerial professionals with enhanced industry knowledge in existing and developing natural resources fields.

UniSA is one of Australia\'s leading universities for interdisciplinary research with the ability to offer industry facing or focused opportunities in science and engineering.

Our programme aims to produce global citizens and offers networking opportunities in London and Adelaide. We offer career advice throughout the programme and foster transferable skills through our multidisciplinary environment.

The programme includes a field trip to explore sedimentary formations similar to shale plays in the UK, and a visit to Olkiluoto nuclear waste repository in Finland. There are further field trips to mine sites and processing facilities in South Australia.
