Higher Degree and Certificate Courses

The NCPGG offers B.Sc.(Honours), M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in petroleum geology or geophysics, and a Graduate Certificate in petroleum geology and geophysics. Students can enrol through The University of Adelaide or The University of South Australia for any of the degree courses. The Graduate Certificate is available only through the University of Adelaide. Research projects for all degrees are undertaken in cooperation with an industry sponsor, and a paid six week industry experience placement with the sponsoring company at the start of the project is a compulsory element of the Honours programme. The excellent employment record of NCPGG graduates demonstrates the relevance to, and acceptance by, the petroleum exploration industry of NCPGG training.

The Centre attracts students from throughout Australia into the Honours and higher degree programmes, and a typical Honours class comprises roughly equal numbers of local and interstate/international students. It has also gained an international reputation for excellence in teaching and research in its areas of expertise. Students from Canada, China, Germany, India, Indonesia, Iran, Jordan, Malaysia, Malta, New Zealand, Nigeria, Norway, Pakistan, the United Kingdom, the USA and Venezuela have graduated from, or are currently studying at, the NCPGG. We welcome interstate and international enquiries concerning studies in petroleum geoscience.
