The NCPGG is recognised as one of the leaders in the Australasia region for the training of students for careers in petroleum exploration and develpoment. A range of courses are offered including B.Sc.(Honours), M.Sc. and Ph.D. degrees in petroleum geology or geophysics, and a Graduate Certificate in petroleum geology and geophysics. More information on the higher degree courses can be found here.

The Centre is proud of the excellent employment record of its graduates, most of whom obtain positions in the petroleum industry upon completion of the Honours Programme. The Centre is widely recognised as providing the essential training for a career in the industry, as well as a thorough preparation for postgraduate study. The curriculum is periodically updated in consultation with the oil and gas industry to maintain its relevance.

A number of scholarships and funding sources are avaliable for students starting studies at the NCPGG. Additionally, to maintain the Centre's national perspective, there are financial incentives for interstate or overseas students to study here.
