Bath is BP’s best UK university

The Careers Advisory Service is delighted to report that BP has revealed that we are its top UK university for graduate recruitment.

The performance indicator used by BP to produce its league table is the ratio of applications to offers for both graduate positions and internships, and in our case 24% of the students and graduates who applied were successful. This beats Cambridge (22%), Imperial (18%), and Oxford (13%), amongst others. Most spectacularly, all the Mechanical Engineering students who applied for the graduate programme were successful.

BP held a presentation here last October which attracted 132 students and triggered some good applications; next semester it has booked to run a skills workshop.

The only university that outperformed us in 2004-5 was Delft, and if anyone knows Delft and can suggest why their students demonstrate even better employability do get in touch...BP would like to know too!
