UCL's School of Energy and Resources in Australia (UCL SERAus) has opened enrolment for its pioneering executive education courses.

UCL SERAus is offering four executive education streams in August 2009, which are now open for enrolment.

These short, intensive courses are suitable for middle managers working in or providing services to the energy and resources industry who are looking to advance their careers.

Each course will be led by a UCL academic and will explore real world issues, advancements and concepts related to the energy and resources sector.

In addition, each course will feature two high profile guest speakers ¬- one with international expertise and the other with a specialist focus from within Australia.

The structure of the course brings together staff and guest speakers with extensive global connections and other like-minded sector professionals, providing outstanding networking opportunities.

Each course runs for five days, with the option of undertaking an assessment for credit on the sixth day (usually a Saturday).

On successful completion of the executive education programme, participants have the option of transferring credit to the MSc in Energy and Resources.
