About

The cross-disciplinary Institute for Sustainable Resources (ISR) from University College London (UCL) conducts research, teaching and enterprise work in the area of Sustainable Resources use of natural resources, bringing together capabilities from across UCL. The Sustainable Resources MPhil/PhD programme is offered at University College London (UCL).

Overview

The Sustainable Resources MPhil/PhD programme from University College London (UCL) and strong links to industry, policy and other academic institutions provide an excellent foundation for PhD study.

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.

The purpose of the upgrade is to assess your progress and ability to complete your PhD programme to a good standard and in a reasonable time frame. It is expected that a full-time student will attempt upgrade within 18 months of registration.

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.

General requirements

  • A minimum of an upper second-class UK Bachelor's degree and a Master's degree, or an overseas qualification of an equivalent standard, in a relevant subject, is essential. 
  • Exceptionally: where applicants have other suitable research or professional experience, they may be admitted without a Master's degree; or where applicants have a lower second-class UK Honours Bachelor's degree (2:2) (or equivalent) they must possess a relevant Master's degree to be admitted. We expect any successful application to include a sufficiently strong and convincing proposal, and those holding a Master's degree are typically well prepared to provide one. Relevant work experience is highly desirable.
