A key component of the programme involves spending two weeks in each of the four universities. For each of these two-week intensive teaching modules, we have cherry-picked the best expertise and specialist knowledge from each particular university.
The majority of the teaching days last from 9 am to 4 pm and participants are expected to write a short paper during this teaching period. This paper will be presented and discussed on the last day of the module. On top of that, all modules feature one or more site visits. Examples include an oil platform under construction, an offshore wind farm and an underground gas storage facility. These site visits are designed to broaden the view of participants and relate legal theory to practice. They provide an opportunity to gain a new perspective and increased insight into the energy sector.
The programme overview can be found below. It is important to mention that the total duration of the module, however, is longer than two weeks. The time for engagement includes preparation (reading of materials made available on the online platform CourseSites), the teaching period itself, and writing an elaborating papers during and after the teaching period. Once the four teaching modules are completed, you will have about nine months to write and submit a your Master’s thesis. The programme will be concluded by a symposium where students present their final thesis.
