    The MSc in Petroleum Engineering programme aims at broadening, strengthening and integrating knowledge and understanding of the oil and gas industry processes. You'll learn the mathematics, science, computer-based methods, design, and engineering practice to solve petroleum engineering problems of varying complexity, taking in consideration the economic, social and environmental context.

    You'll gain a detailed knowledge of the integrated model of the oil reservoir, so that you'll be able to predict, maintain and improve oil and gas production processes. You'll benefit from the detailed instruction you receive on a suite of software packages that are used in the oil and gas industries to maximize costeffective production from the field, these include: PETREL, HYSYS, Eclipse, Prosper and GAP.

    At the end of the programme you should have obtained a deep and broad knowledge of the integrated model of the oil reservoir in order to predict, improve, maintain and to innovate the processes of oil and gas production.

    Employability

    The complexity of the oil and gas industry offers a wide variety of opportunities for career development to petroleum engineers.

    In most oil companies worldwide the petroleum engineering team consists of a geologist, a reservoir engineer, a petro-physicist, a drilling engineer and a production engineer. With this Masters qualification you'll be qualified to apply for positions in all of these fields. Each member of this team will be concentrating on their own aspect of the larger task in hand, which is to maximise cost-effective production from the field.

    As a graduate of the MSc in Petroleum Engineering your profile will match the needs in different areas of oil and gas production, and reservoir engineering in large companies, which offer attractive graduate programmes, and in medium and small operating and consulting companies.

    UK requirements for international applications

    Universities in the United Kingdom use a centralized system of undergraduate application: University and College Admissions Service (UCAS). It is used by both domestic and international students. Students have to register on the UCAS website before applying to the university. They will find all the necessary information about the application process on this website. Some graduate courses also require registration on this website, but in most cases students have to apply directly to the university. Some universities also accept undergraduate application through Common App (the information about it could be found on universities' websites).

    Both undergraduate and graduate students may receive three types of responses from the university. The first one, “unconditional offer” means that you already reached all requirements and may be admitted to the university. The second one, “conditional offer” makes your admission possible if you fulfill some criteria – for example, have good grades on final exams. The third one, “unsuccessful application” means that you, unfortunately, could not be admitted to the university of you choice.

    All universities require personal statement, which should include the reasons to study in the UK and the information about personal and professional goals of the student and a transcript, which includes grades received in high school or in the previous university.


    Program requirements

    Bachelor degree equivalent to UK Second Class Honours Lower Division in a physical science, engineering or other relevant technological discipline. We particularly welcome overseas and EU applicants with relevant qualifications.
    Scholarships

    We offer students considerable financial help through scholarships, bursaries, charitable funds, loans and other financial support. Many of our scholarships are given as direct Tuition Fee discounts and we encourage all eligible students to apply for our Vice-Chancellor Scholarships.

    Vice-Chancellor Scholarships

    Students holding an offer of a place on a postgraduate course will be invited to apply for a Vice-Chancellor’s scholarship. The Vice-Chancellor's Scholarship programme offers a range of rewards from £1,000 bursaries to a full fee waiver.

    LSBU Graduate Loyalty Scheme

    This scheme gives eligible undergraduate students and alumni a discount of their taught postgraduate tuition fees when they enrol on one of our postgraduate taught courses starting this year. All final year LSBU undergraduates, achieving a 2:1 or higher, who process directly onto an LSBU postgraduate taught course receive a 25% discount off their fees.

    International Scholarships

    As well as being potentially eligible for our postgraduate scholarships, International students can also benefit from a range of scholarships just for them.
