The TSU engages in a number of teaching activities within the University of Oxford and beyond.
We offer highly rated options on 'Transport and Mobilities' in the undergraduate programme in Geography, and on 'Cities, Mobility and Climate Change' in the master programmes of the School of Geography and the Environment. Contributions are also made to the core teaching on the School's undergraduate and postgraduate courses and to courses offered elsewhere in the University.
The TSU provides opportunities for PhD research and is keen to recruit outstanding students with excellent ideas for a major piece of independent research. Students working on their PhD dissertation participate in the Doctor of Philosophy (DPhil) programme offered in Geography and the Environment. More information is available on the School's website.
We offer an innovative executive education programme called Global Challenges in Transport. It consists of short courses and is delivered in collaboration with the Saïd Business School. The courses bring together early-career and senior practitioners, decision makers and researchers with an interest in sustainable transport. More information is available on our website. We can also deliver bespoke training to professionals, researchers and students from different backgrounds.
The TSU also undertakes a range of other outreach activities targeted at local, national and international policy-makers, firms and corporations, and NGOs and other third sector organisations. Many of these activities are built into the research projects we undertake and consist of conferences, workshops, seminars, policy reports and policy briefings. Some of our recent projects have had an impact on public policy and debate in Oxfordshire, the UK and elsewhere. Each academic year we also organise a public seminar series, which is usually dedicated to a specific transport-related theme. Presentations and audio files for a selection of seminars are available on our website.
