Student Programme

The AOW Student Programme is proudly sponsored by Seatrain.

Friday 8th November

The Africa Oil Week Student Programme is a unique programme that offers unprecedented access to industry trends and networking opportunities with global players within this exciting market.

Final year students from leading Pan-Continental universities will gain exposure to the industry they are about to enter. It gives the private sector support in bridging their workforce deficits and will allow governments to meet and address capacity issues. With a distinct shortage of skills, this programme gives operators access to the next wave of talent whilst attracting young leaders to the sector.

Who qualifies?

Final year students who are currently studying with any of our partner Universities. Students from partner Universities will be able to attend the Summit on the 7th November and a specialist Student day on the 8th November.

For more information on this initiative or to become a University partner, please contact Catriona McDavid, Conference Producer at
