This is a multi-disciplinary distance learning programme designed to address the cross-border elements of the oil and gas industry and respond to the demand for highly qualified professionals in the sector. The modules have been designed to be relevant to you if you work in, or wish to embark on a career within the national and international oil, gas and energy industries and the renewable energy sector.

More about this course

This is a stimulating and rewarding course designed for individuals who currently work in the international oil, gas and energy industries or who wish to embark on careers in that industry. It is especially beneficial for private practice lawyers in oil, gas and energy law (or lawyers hoping to specialise in these areas).

The course is also ideal for in-house lawyers from the upstream and downstream oil, gas and energy sectors or non-legal professionals working in the oil, gas and energy sectors, in particular:
-Finance
-Compliance
-Business development
-Environmental positions
-Licensing
-Operations
-Procurement
-Project managers
-Taxation
-Contract managers
-Distribution
-Company secretaries
-Renewables

This distance learning course is taught in partnership with Informa via their online learning platform. It focusses on the practical aspects of oil and gas law and is set in the broader context of contemporary energy regulation, law and policy. It seeks to develop a deep understanding of how to resolve the challenges posed by national authorities to oil, gas and energy production.

Those working in the oil and gas sectors increasingly want and need to have an understanding of the legal principles that underpin many of their activities, from the drafting of basic contracts to the intricacies, controversies and complexities of the international regimes covering such matters as oil pollution from ships and the delimitation of continental shelf reserves between adjacent and opposite states.

This course seeks to introduce you to the fundamental precepts of English commercial law; to the institutional legal framework of the oil and gas economies; to contracts; regulations and treaties relating to oil and gas exploration and exploitation (including those relating to environmental issues); and to matters of finance, including investment, insurance and taxation.

The course provides a programme of postgraduate study which will develop your academic knowledge and awareness of issues in international oil, gas and energy law and increase your understanding of the legal dimensions to activities taking place in the oil, gas and energy fields and the extent to which they might give rise to legal issues. As well as deepening your understanding of the law in these areas, our focus throughout the programme is on the practical application of the law. The programme benefits from teaching by tutors with strong relevant backgrounds in the academic world and in legal practice with a number practising as barristers or solicitors.

This LLM top up will consist of one research based module followed by a dissertation of between 12,000-15,000 words.

This course broadens your technical skills in essential areas directly relevant to the oil and gas sector. It has several optional themes to direct you into specialist areas of knowledge such as project management, economics and finance and environmental management. The 60-credit dissertation module allows you to conduct a supervised research project developing original knowledge in a specific area of oil and gas management.

Course details

Teesside is a major European centre for the chemical and petroleum processing sector, making it an ideal location to study this field. The oil and gas industry is well represented with a range of internationally recognised companies operating in the region.There are three routes you can select from to gain a postgraduate Master’s award:

  • MSc Oil and Gas Management – one year full time
  • MSc Oil and Gas Management – two years part time
  • MSc Oil and Gas Management (with Advanced Practice) – two years full time

The one-year programme is a great option if you want to gain a traditional MSc qualification – you can find out more here. This two-year master’s degree with advanced practice enhances your qualification by adding to the one-year master’s programme an internship, research or study abroad experience.

The MSc Oil and Gas Management (with Advanced Practice) is ideal if you are intending to pursue a management career in the oil and gas industry, or if you are already working in the sector and would like to develop management skills and knowledge at master’s level. A two-year master’s degree with advanced practice offers you the chance to enhance your qualification by spending one semester completing an internship, research or study abroad experience. Graduates from a range of technical, non-technical and commercial backgrounds are eligible to apply.

What you study

For the MSc with advanced practice, you complete 120 credits of taught modules, a 60-credit master’s research project and 60 credits of advanced practice.

Teaching

How you learn

You learn through lectures, tutorials and practical sessions. Lectures provide the theoretical underpinning while practical sessions give you the opportunity to put theory into practice, applying your knowledge to specific problems. 

Tutorials and seminars provide a context for interactive learning and allow you to explore relevant topics in depth. In addition to the taught sessions, you undertake a substantive MSc research project.

In addition to the taught sessions, you undertake a substantive MSc research project and the Advanced Practice module. This module enables you to experience and develop employability or research attributes and experiential learning opportunities in either an external workplace, internal research environment or by studying abroad. You also critically engage with either external stakeholders or internal academic staff, and reflect on your own personal development through your Advanced Practice experience.

How you are assessed

Assessment varies from module to module. It may include in-course assignments, design exercises, technical reports, presentations or formal examinations. For your MSc project you prepare a dissertation.

Your Advanced Practice module is assessed by an individual written reflective report (3,000 words) together with a study or workplace log, where appropriate, and through a poster presentation.

Employability

The course equips you with the relevant technical skills to pursue a career as technical manager in the oil and gas sector in a consultancy, contracting company or government organisation.
