The following scholarships offered by external organisations are made available to students in our Department for September 2021 entry.

Shell scholarship

Manchester and Shell have come together to offer one student, who holds an offer with us to study on our Petroleum Geoscience MSc, an exciting scholarship which will cover the full cost of the course fees. The scholarship also offers the potential for that student to undertake a cv-enhancing internship where you could carry out your final research projects with Shell. 

Once you've applied and received an offer for September 2021 entry, we will automatically consider you for this scholarship. Students will be shortlisted and interviews will be held at Manchester, at which Shell will attend. The interview panel will include members from industry and Manchester academics who then select the best candidate.

This scholarship is currently for UK fee-paying students only, and thus is only open to UK students.
