Students will have the opportunity to explore a range of themes to broaden their knowledge and sharpen their critical analysis of current global debates and challenges, these include:
· Licensing and upstream taxation
· Investment appraisal techniques and risk analysis
· Health, safety and environmental regulation
· Crude oil market, determinants of oil supply and demand
· Principles of accounting
· Principals and features of oil and gas contracts
Taught courses are the same on both the MSc and LLM programmes and are delivered with an interdisciplinary approach. Prospective students with a background in finance or business may feel that the MSc is a better fit for their experience as they will undertake a 60-credit business dissertation in the Business School on a business (i.e. economics, finance, etc.) related topic. Applicants with some professional legal experience or previous study in law may wish to choose the LLM degree option which concludes with a 60-credit dissertation on a legal topic under the Law School.
We will endeavour to make all course options available; however, these may be subject to timetabling and other constraints. Please see our InfoHub pages for further information.
