We’re a global energy business, working towards cleaner energy, while lowering carbon in a safe, sustainable way to help the world keep advancing. It’s only by bringing together diverse people in one, world-class team that we’ll succeed.

BP relies on talented and ambitious business & trading professionals, engineers and scientists.  A career in BP gives you opportunities to experience first-hand what we do – whether it’s using the latest technology to find oil and gas, renewables ventures, building platforms in the ocean, developing low-carbon fuels and lubricants, working on the bustling trading floor or supporting the whole business through functions such as HR, Sales and Marketing.

We are delighted to offer students at RGU the chance to secure a scholarship that will support you through your degree (on certain courses) from second through to fourth year.
