Course summary

Overview

Faced with a growing global population and increased demand and competition for natural resources our mission is to generate knowledge in their globally sustainable use. Our research portfolio includes major EU and EPSRC funded projects, as well as consultancy with industry and policy practitioners at the highest level. The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) consists of a piece of supervised research, normally undertaken over a period of three years full-time. Assessment is by means of a thesis, which should demonstrate your capacity to pursue original research based upon a good understanding of the research techniques and concepts appropriate to the discipline.

Careers

Many of our graduates have gone on to careers in teaching and research as well as in consultancy, industry, government and policy concerned with the economy-resource-environment interface.

Employability

The UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources (ISR) aims to train highly employable graduates who are equipped with the required analytical capability, research skills, knowledge, management skills, and professional values to become leaders and entrepreneurs in their chosen field. Leadership, communication, teamwork, language and business skills are refined in the high-quality multidisciplinary research environment through our taught programmes, workshops, internal and external seminars.
