BP invites undergrads to explore the working world

BP is offering university students a number of opportunities to gain real-world experience before they graduate.

Held at BP sites across the UK, from Aberdeen to London’s Canary Wharf, BP has opened applications to a number of student insight initiatives.

The flagship initiative, BP Discovery Days, will provide 125 students in their first two years of university with the chance to gain an insight into BP’s business and a better understanding of how their degree subject could be used in a working environment.

The initiative covers a multitude of careers from exploring for oil and gas through to trading energy on a global scale. At each of the events, undergraduates will meet recent graduates, hear about the challenges facing the businesses, tour BP’s operations and take part in an interview/application skills workshop.

This coming August BP is also  running a series of ‘shadow an intern’ days, where up to 80 students will get to spend a full day with a current intern, to better understand what an internship entails.

Finally, its Widening Participation Programme is a week-long event made up of skills workshops, shadowing BP employees, and a visit to a BP operating site.

Taking place this June in London, and open to all undergraduate STEM students, the programme allows them to find out how their STEM knowledge can apply in a company such as BP.
