    Assuming you have a first degree that is 2:1+ or equivalent I would say you have an excellent chance at getting into the course.

    I'm also trying to apply to the school of earth sciences and I've just finished my first degree with no experience :/ (petroleum engineering)

    Would love to speak to you in PM about your experience in the E&P sector if you have time.

    Edit: Admissions opened 10 days ago.

    Hey,
    No i'm not applying to the MSc in Petroleum Geoscience. I'm applying to the MSc in Metals and Energy Finance (quite excited about this course so really hoping I get offered a position).

    I went to the uni of Manchester and did Petroleum Engineering there so a fairly relevant undergraduate degree.

    Since there seems to be nowhere else to post, did you guys also get that postgrad email from imperial?

    Lol I thought the email meant theyd finally verified my second reference but nope, still only one reference.

    I haven't actually heard anything from them at all :P
    I gave my email address to a few unis for more info about MScs at the BGS/GeoSoc careers day last month but it took weeks to hear anything from UoM and I didn't hear anything back from IC or Leeds...
    Might be worth checking with your referee to make sure they've filled it in?

    Nah both he and imperial confirmed to me that he had submitted my referral. They just need to verify it which can take up to 3 weeks :/

    Hi Dear,
    I hope you doing well. Yesterday i went through a Skype interview with a professor, it was good and you were absolutely right regarding experience and grades. She actually added that she would share some material for reading and also added that they had not received response from my second referee, so ask him to send it again. The decision on my application will be taken after Christmas holidays. I hope it will be postive one , what do u say ?

    Hi Amir,
    That is great to hear, I am sure they will respond to you with an offer. Thanks for reassuring me, I was worried they would not review my application without complete references but it appears as though they have looked at yours so hopefully will look at mine also.

    Hey Aamir, I am a British born Bangladeshi who has lived in London my entire life pretty much. I have just completed my degree in Petroleum Engineering and am trying to get into energy economics or into the mineral industry of Morocco.


    Inshallah we can both secure places in Imperial, I would like to remain in contact regardless of whether I receive an offer or not however.

    Just a quick question, I'm assuming like other unis we have to give the form to our referees to fill in ourselves (ie the admissions team don't send it for us) - whereabouts is the form for referees located? I can only find ones for other departments on the website?

    Also, I wont be able to get a copy of my degree transcript until next term - do you think it will matter if I send off my application without this and forward it to admissions later?

    And good luck with your applications

    Referrals for imperial are letters of recommendation, simply provide official emails and the university will contact them for it.

    you would have to call admissions after the christmas break regarding the transcript. If it helps they wont even be looking at any applications till 4th of jan.
