Which courses qualify for a scholarship

a) MSc Petroleum Engineering
This MSc course is a one-year, full-time course that trains petroleum engineering professionals to understand and effectively utilise the workflow concepts now prevailing in the oil industry, and prepares them fully for work in multidisciplinary teams.

The course provides a 12-month conversion from other engineering and science-based foundations into the specialties of petroleum engineering, and is designed for both those with industrial experience and recent graduates.

Entry requirements
We accept students with first class degrees from a wide range of science and engineering backgrounds from UK and overseas academic institutions.
Professionals with other qualifications, but with a minimum of three years’ relevant industrial experience, are also encouraged to apply.
If your first degree is from a country other than the UK, you may find the guidelines within our Country Index helpful. Please note that these guidelines indicate the College minimum.
