    Description

    Advertisement

    This interdisciplinary pathway explores the interface between security, energy and environment by engaging the latest critical thinking on risk management, critical infrastructure, public regulation, policy studies and the environmental sciences.

    The Environment, Energy and Resilience pathway trains social science researchers who understand the impacts of living with environmental change, the uncertainties of environmental change for energy and food security and the diverse responses needed to foster behaviours, practices and policies that promote sustainability and resilience. We welcome students from a wide range of disciplinary backgrounds.

    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.

    Requirements

    A Masters qualification (or equivalent) with appropriate research training.

    English Language Requirements

    IELTS band: 6.5

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Since April 2014 the ETS tests (including TOEFL and TOEIC) are no longer accepted for Tier 4 visa applications to the United Kingdom. The university might still accept these tests to admit you to the university, but if you require a Tier 4 visa to enter the UK and begin your degree programme, these tests will not be sufficient to obtain your Visa.

    The IELTS test is most widely accepted by universities and is also accepted for Tier 4 visas to the UK- learn more.

    Funding

    The South West Doctoral Training Centre has been allocated 41 ESRC studentships per annum to be distributed over all the available SWDTC pathways for applicants from the UK/EU. For details on eligibility see the ESRC regulations.
    Further information on funding for prospective UK, EU and international postgraduate students is available from the Student Funding Officewebsite.
