Our PhD programme has a versatile ethos to research and scholarship to prepare the new generation of analysts for the varied challenges of the natural resources industry.

Doctoral research is an essential part of our research and training activities. Most PhD research involves different aspects of the natural resources industry (energy, petroleum, and mining) from economic, legal-regulatory, and multidisciplinary perspectives. Reflecting the major concerns of our times, there is also growing interest in the law and policy of renewable energy and climate change issues.
