The China-UK Low Carbon College (LCC) is the first college in China which pioneers in low-carbon research and education. Currently, LCC has two full-time Master Programmes in Low Carbon Environment and Low Carbon Energy. It has established partnerships with top universities including the University of Edinburgh (UoE) and University College London (UCL). Meanwhile, LCC is actively seeking collaboration opportunities with other world-class universities. It aims to establish a training base for interdisciplinary and practical talents in the field of low-carbon industry and carbon finance.
The Low Carbon Environment & Low Carbon Energy programmes are dual degree programmes with the University of Edinburgh. These programmes are mostly conducted in English and normally take two and a half years to complete.
Students spend their first year studying at the China-UK Low Carbon College of Shanghai Jiao Tong University and can apply to study at the University of Edinburgh for their second year once meeting its entry requirements. In the final half year, students are required to complete their thesis in Shanghai Jiao Tong University.
Students will be awarded Master’s degree from SJTU and UoE once they fulfill the required credits and complete their thesis at both universities.
