Accreditation of Prior Learning (APL) will be permitted only under the terms of University procedure. Successful applicants will normally be required to have an 2ii (or better) honours degree in a subject broadly related to the science, engineering or business and management branches of the oil and gas industry. Ideally, students should have a working knowledge of chemistry to at least Level 2 (GCSE). English competence for international applicants should be in-line with University requirements for Masters-level taught degrees (IELTS currently 6.5 in all aspects).
International students will require approval from the Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS). Its aim is to help stop the spread of knowledge and skills that could be used in the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction (WMD) and their means of delivery. The ATAS is specifically designed to ensure that those applying for postgraduate study in certain sensitive subjects do not acquire knowledge that could potentially be used in WMD courses.
