Graduate programmes


Graduates from Leoben are invited to apply for bp's UK Early Development Programme. The usual starting point for Leoben graduates is either Aberdeen (North Sea centre) or London (international exploration and production centre in Sunbury), with the possibility of an overseas posting later in their career.


There will be a limited number of vacancies for geoscience and petroleum engineering graduates for a start date in 2020. You might also be interested in upstream data science and data management, business or trading roles.

Intern programmes


Students can apply for office based summer internships in the UK, typically lasting 11 weeks, which also might offer an opportunity for a student's master's project.


Depending on your performance and a final presentation at the end of your internship, you might even be able to secure a job offer from bp before you even finish your final academic year!

Application process

Online applications for graduate opportunities and internships usually open in mid-September and close as soon as vacancies have been filled. Apply early to increase your chances!


Apply online:

  • Feel free to browse the bp careers website to find out more about the opportunities bp has to offer before you apply.

When you are ready:

  • Start with the degree matcher (below) selecting United Kingdom, then choose your preferred opportunity and fill out the online application form. 
  • You will also be asked to complete online situational judgement, numerical and verbal tests soon after you submit the form.


  • Following a successful phone interview with HR, we will invite you to a face-to-face technical interview in the UK.

Assessment centre:

  • Focusing on behavioural aspects, you will be working as part of a small team on a business simulation exercise in which you will have to deal with a series of problems.

Job offers:
