Open day

We hold an annual open day for the MSc Petroleum Geoscience course, usually in late January or early February. The Open Day provides an opportunity for applicants and prospective students to meet course tutors, view our facilities, and talk to current students. We regard the open day as an important opportunity for prospective students to meet us (and vice versa!). As part of the open day, we interview applicants for funded scholarships - consequently, we encourage UK and EU students who are eligible for these scholarships to attend the open day. The Open Day for entry to the 2017-18 course will be held on  Friday 10 February 2017; UK and EU applicants should apply before 12 January 2017 if they wish to be considered for interview on the Open Day.

MSc Petroleum Engineering

The course is supported with grants and scholarships by the petroleum industry (from the UK and elsewhere) which cover subsistence, College fees and field work expenses.

These are normally awarded to home and EU students, and provide funding for about 30% of the total number of the candidates on the course. A scholarship day is held - usually in May - where applicants are interviewed by Imperial College staff and representatives from the organisations awarding the scholarships.

Although no scholarships are available through Imperial College for overseas students, there are a number of scholarships that can be applied to directly. Details of all of these scholarships can be found on the postgraduate prospectus site.

MSc Metals & Energy


Candidates who have been accepted on the course will be eligible for the award of a scholarship under a range of schemes. Consideration for the award of a scholarship will be undertaken as part of the admission process and an award will be based on academic criteria using the information provided in the course application form and interview where appropriate. The course is generously supported by a number of international companies with interest in the field of finance and natural resources.
