BP scholarships poster girl

The BP scholarships are worth £5,000 per academic year, excluding placement years.

They are open to UK, EU and international students studying selected courses.

What will you discover?

BP relies on talented and ambitious engineers, management professionals and scientists and works closely with the University to support careers in the oil and gas industry.

Being a BP scholar will guarantee you an intern or graduate interview.

As part of this programme BP is delighted to be able to offer a £5,000 scholarship each year for the duration of your degree. Four to eight scholarships will be available.

As well as financial support, being a BP scholar gives you a unique opportunity to experience first-hand what we do, including:

  • using the latest technology to find oil and gas
  • building platforms in the ocean
  • developing low carbon fuels and lubricants.

Management and Economics students will be interested in roles in finance, trading, human resources and procurement.

You’ll also be invited to join BP for exclusive events and experiences and meet their graduate Challengers.

Meanwhile, back on campus, there’ll be opportunities to meet interns who have spent a summer or a year with BP and who may now be in their final year at the University of Bath before joining again as graduates.

BP scholarships are open to first year students only and are awarded on the basis of an online application form, short online numerical and verbal tests and a face-to-face interview (date to be confirmed).
