UCL (Australia) will award up to AUD$1.935m of scholarships to the most outstanding students to study either a Masters or PhD (research) in Energy and Resources.
These scholarships are intended to support students pursuing postgraduate studies in energy and resources at either the UCL School of Energy and Resources, Australia, or the UCL International Energy Policy Institute.
How to apply
Applicants who wish to be considered for one of the BHP Billiton Scholarships must apply online.
Applicants for the MSc who meet the academic requirements for admission will also be ranked on other criteria including the submission of an essay. Every intake the essay topic will vary. For the February 2013 intake, the essay requires students to critically analyse the statement: “The concept of ‘peak oil’ has been devised to reflect scarcity associated with oil supplies. But surely the price of oil would be a more efficient indication of its scarcity.”
This essay should be no more than 500 words (including footnotes, but excluding references) and will be checked for plagiarism using Turnitin®
Applicants who are shortlisted for the BHP Billiton MSc Scholarships on the basis of their academic qualifications will be ranked according to the quality and originality of their essay.
Applicants for PhD should detail their research interests; some examples of current research projects are available here.
In all cases an interview with the shortlisted candidate(s) will take place.
