Renewable Energy Systems Technology (Distance Learning) MSc

Programme information

By using the same programme materials, distance learning students are able to achieve the same outcomes as those on the full-time MSc in Renewable Energy Systems Technology.

We have developed new ways of learning which offer students flexibility in place, pace and mode to meet the demand for this highly sought after qualification but who cannot attend traditional university classes.

Instead of face-to-face lectures and tutorials, the main learning routes for distance learning students are via the University’s virtual learning environment (LEARN). The learning resources for each study unit include online study materials, live streamed and recorded lectures, virtual and remote laboratories, tutorials, assignments and computer aided assessments, and access to past exam papers. You will be assessed by examination, coursework, group work and research project. (Distance learning students will sit their examination at a suitable local venue.)

By the end of this course you will have gained a comprehensive understanding of renewable energy technologies and developed a range of important transferable skills. 

Entry requirements
