University of Leeds
This two year masters is designed to meet the demanding and evolving needs of industry, equipping you with the tools to be highly skilled petroleum explorationists. It aims to prepare you for classic, conventional exploration and develop your skills to meet the changing needs of unconventional exploration. This programme integrates the strengths of two leading universities, offering you training in petroleum exploration that is unique from any other course globally. The University of Leeds is a Russell Group University established in 1904. Research-led teaching and commitment to excellence, creates a dynamic learning environment and makes Leeds one of the UK�s top universities. Jacobs University is a private, English language, residential university, distinguished by its international orientation and highly selective admission, based on candidates� academic and personal potential.

A bachelor degree with a 2.1 (Hons) or above in a geological, geophysical, environmental geology, mining or related subject. Mathematics to A-level is also preferred, although GSCE level is accepted. Lower qualifications and non-standard geology degrees may be considered on an ad-hoc basis, supported by relevant experience. Applicants may have to take an entrance exam. We accept a range of international equivalent qualifications.
Year 1: reservoir structural geology and hydrocarbon prospectivity of basins; applied geophysical methods; integrated sub surface analysis; applied structural models; geomechanics; applied geodynamics and basin evolution; 3d structure: techniques and visualisation. Year 2: petroleum system geochemistry and processes; sedimentary geology; petroleum system and depositional modelling; numerical analysis; regional petroleum systems; petroleum systems fieldwork; skills development; structural geology independent project.
Given the variety of learning outcomes and teaching methods, assessments differ between modules but generally consist of written exams, coursework (both in-class and independently completed), project report writing, group and individual presentations, assessed practicals and/or formal examinations.
