Making the Connection: Education and Outreach

TSU's Executive Education Courses

The TSU's Global Challenges in Transport: Oxford Leadership Programme provides executive online and residential courses which can be taken independently or as a series. Each course draws together transport professionals and researchers from around the world to share insights as they reflect on their own practice and wide-ranging experiences.

Taught by world-leading experts, participants explore the broader social, environmental and political questions around transport in a lively two-way dialogue. The course content is regularly updated to focus on the most relevant complex issues and challenges around sustainable transport and provide the most updated and rigorous research.


COVID-19 Update

Please note: due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic our 2020 residential executive education courses have unfortunately been cancelled.

Our newly launched online executive education course Global Challenges in Transport: Urban Mobility after COVID-19 is open and accepting applications for the 16 Nov - 13 Dec 2020.

Our next residential courses will run in 2021, on the dates advertised. However, in light of Coronavirus (COVID-19) we will not require successful applicants to pay the course fees until the situation becomes clearer and would not advise committing to any other related expenses (i.e. travel).

It is possible that courses may need to be postponed, but we will continue to monitor events and follow UK Government guidance. Successful applicants will hear from us well in advance of the course date if this is likely to be the case. We will also be providing the option to defer enrolments to later courses.

Please contact: exed@tsu.ox.ac.uk for any queries in relation to this.
