Hello,
I am an American looking to study my masters in petroleum geoscience in Europe. So far I have been accepted to University of Aberdeen, University of Manchester, and TU Delft. I was able to tour all of these schools and I can see myself being happy at all of them. In your opinion, what is the best school to attend right now? TU Delft is a 2 year program, which gives me a little more time for oil to go up before Im looking for a job. The program is half petroleum engineering and half geoscience, so it is quite different than the other two programs. I feel that this would make me a more rounded candidate. Manchester and Aberdeen both have their advantages too so I am having a tough time making a decision. What are some of yalls opinions? thanks!

TU Delft is definitely better than either Manchester or Aberdeen and I guess it is also cheaper, but it is unfortunately 2 years so you have to consider living costs.

If you wanna do it in just one year and have it done and move on with your life go to Manchester.

Aberdeen has a huge oil / energy industry with a lot of professionals and evening industry talks and the cost of living is reasonably cheap so definitely one to give serious consideration.

Manchester might be considered the better university but in this context in which you want to specialise in petroleum geoscience then I think the industry and research at Aberdeen might be the one.

The Aberdeen oil industry, is easily accessible when graduating from Manchester.

Aberdeen is the european equivalent to Houston in the U.S.

Good luck!
