MSc in Energy Systems 2019-20, University of Oxford
We are in the final weeks of the first year of the inaugural cohort for the MSc in Energy Systems. Thankfully the classroom teaching was not disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic and the University closure. Only minor changes to two of the non-taught assessments were made. We are in the process of moving into the student’s research projects that are due to be submitted at the beginning of September.
The admissions process for the next academic year, 2020-21, has gone very well. We have received 223 applications for a total of 26 full time and 2 year part time places. Both the quantity and quality of the applications was impressive and reflected a very high standard. Also, the breadth of nationalities was diverse. Places were offered to students from every continent except Antarctica. This form of diversity brought a significant strength to the inaugural year’s cohort. We look forward to a similar benefit from the coming year’s students.
