Postgraduate of Energy and Climate

University of Antwerp
Campus Part time September 2017 Belgium Antwerp

Global climate change is mainly caused by emissions arising from our daily energy use. "Think globally, act locally" is necessary to trigger urgent and drastic changes. Energy use and solutions are local, but markets and technologies are global. [+]

Global climate change is mainly caused by emissions arising from our daily energy use. “Think globally, act locally” is necessary to trigger urgent and drastic changes. Energy use and solutions are local, but markets and technologies are global. Finding feasible pathways to transform energy systems poses huge challenges for all of us. - On the one hand, drastic change requires fresh ideas, new ways of approaching problems and the discovery of unexplored paths. - On the other hand the solid laws of physics and eternal endeavours of human beings constrain freedom of action. The Postgraduate of Energy and Climate is innovative. The lectures focus on energy for the future: energy efficiency and renewable energy are studied from the energy end-use and services perspective. But the future is also uncertain: debated policy topics are covered by two lecturers, diverging in analysis and proposed solutions. The programme furthermore focuses on our common future: it invites a broad audience, from non-technical scholars to certified engineers, who are all eager to learn about new perspectives and approaches for addressing energy and climate issues.

A-Levels are among the most respected and accredited exams for school leavers in the world. A-Levels are the exams taken by students aged 16-18 in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. More than ¾ million candidates take A-Levels every year, and the A-Level results are recognised by universities worldwide. A high grade in the A-Levels is important for entry into top universities in the world such as Oxford, Harvard, Cambridge and Yale. The A-Level programme at Oxford Royale Academy offers the chance for students to take up to 3 A-Levels over a 5 or 6 term period. In addition, there is a 3-term programme for students who are of exceptional ability and are considered to already have covered the first year of A-Level material. Whilst many schools and colleges offer the A-Level programme, few offer such a bespoke and tailored timetable as here at Oxford Royale Academy. Here, students can pick and choose exactly which individual A-Levels they would like to study, and can choose to supplement this study with our supplementary study modules such as UCAS and University Guidance or Academic Essay Writing. In addition to learning the subject knowledge needed to achieve a high grade in the A-Levels, students also learn how to revise effectively, how to structure an essay and how to prepare a presentation in our weekly academic skills workshops, and have the opportunity to enrich their knowledge with our personal development programme. We are confident that you will progress at a much faster rate here at Oxford Royale Academy than other schools or colleges. In most Sixth Forms, schools and international colleges, the average class size is 20 people. Here at Oxford Royale Academy, we prefer the Oxbridge-style teaching methods, focused around a maximum of 4 students in a class (called a tutorial). This style of teaching offers the chance to discuss topics in depth with the tutor, to ask questions and to complete the course at your own pace. A-Levels are notable for their academic rigour. While any subject will require some memorisation of facts, A-Levels generally reward creativity, insight, analysis and deeper understanding rather than the shallowness of rote learning. This makes studying for A-Levels a good preparation for the kind of mental dexterity required at university, as well as being a satisfying intellectual challenge that will leave you feeling academically stretched.
