The Department of Geological Sciences, sponsored by Thailand's major oil company PTT Exploration and Production provides a one year four months full time Petroleum Geophysics MSc. for international students.
The course is designed for students with English as a second language, and provides instruction for improving English, and as well as extra time from the usual 1 year course to help accommodate the difficulties of learning in a second language. Few scholarships are available.
The course runs from 14th August through to December (16 month period), and is offered annually. There is 1 year of class work given in 4 week modules, a geological fieldtrip, and a 4 months research project. http://www.petroleumgeophysicscmu.com/
