    Hello,

    I'm an international student looking into getting in an MSc in Petroleum Engineering program.
    I would like to know what are good universities in the UK for that, whether it is accredited or not, and cost shouldn't be greater than £20,000/course.

    I'm currently looking into Brunel and Leeds. Which one is better?
    Also is there any chance of getting funding or scholarships or financing for overseas students?

    I think Aberdeen and Imperial are probably the best places for that in the UK. But have you considered doing your MSc in Norway instead? There are no tuition fees, even for international students and pretty much all master's degrees are taught in English. Norwegian universities have better petroleum industry contacts than any British university.

    I'd like to be able to do it in a year.
    I already have an offer from Aberdeen.
    I'm also going to apply to Brunel and Salford.

    An extra year isn't the end of the world. Spending (a lot) more money and getting less for it sounds daft to me, but it's your money to waste.

    The thing is I'm going to pursue two graduate degrees, this is where the UK is interesting to me.

    Why would you want to do two?

    Out of pure curiosity and interest? Is that wrong?
