University of Leeds
A Bachelor's degree with a 2.1 (Honours) or above in geosciences (eg geology or geophysics) or a numerate discipline, such as physics or mathematics, although relevant and extensive industry experience can also be taken into account. Applicants should have mathematics to a good A-level grade (or equivalent) as a minimum. Mathematical competence will be assessed prior to joining and additional training may be required. The course is computer-intensive and basic computer literacy including Windows and MS Office are assumed. EDCL/ICDL qualifications are not formally required, but represent the level expected. Familiarity with Linux would also be advantageous as it forms the platform for much of the workstation based training. We accept a range of international equivalent qualifications.
Modules include: Exploration geophysics: project and dissertation; computational inverse theory; petrophysics and petroleum geology; seismic reservoir evaluation and recent developments; geophysical and geological field methods and geological interpretation; gravity, magnetic and csem methods; seismic fundamentals and acquisition; seismic data processing; seismic reflection interpretation and sequence stratigraphy.
Assessment is through written exams, coursework (both in-class and independently completed), project report writing and group presentations.
