Educational material

We have produced a curriculum, “Teach Yourself Oil”, which is made up of 13 modules on various aspects of the oil industry, ranging from the Resource Curse to EITI and energy security. The modules consist of reading material taken from the public domain; sources include reports from Revenue Watch Institue , oil specific media reports and the BP Statistical Analysis to give just a few examples.

You can see the curriculum along with the multiple choice questions, named “Teach Yourself”, in English here and exactly the same material in Arabic here.

After the first Introductory Module, the modules are not designed to be taken in any specific order, so feel free to pick a module and test yourself!

If you’d like to discuss commissioning further educational material, or the use of our Teach Yourself curriculum, please contact Zara Rahman at zara.rahman(at)
