Summer Vacation Program

About the QGC Summer Vacation Program

The QGC Summer Vacation Program targets students in their penultimate year of study providing them with hands-on work experience to improve their technical ability and commercial awareness.

The 10 to 12 week paid program provides a challenging scope of work or project which the student will complete under the guidance and support of a line manager and professional mentor.

Various development sessions and a field trip provide vacation students with the opportunity to gain a broader awareness of the varying functions within QGC and also to allow them to build on their existing industry knowledge through interactions with past graduates, subject matter experts and senior QGC and BG Group managers.

The Summer Vacation Program is an ideal opportunity for students to experience QGC first hand and gain early access to our graduate programs.
