Our Professional Development Unit (PDU) supports all Saudi Aramco’s sponsored students in training and development programs across UK & Europe, helping to create the next generation of Saudi Aramco professionals and develop a competent workforce.

PDU is based in London and provides support for students and their dependents while they study in Europe on undergraduate/postgraduate courses and shorter technical training programs.

A comprehensive service

We monitor program participants’ progress throughout their assignments and provide support, administrative and logistics services and contribute to their development.

This starts with maintaining relationships with academic institutions and assessing the quality and scope of their courses, as well as providing pastoral and logistical support for the each student. PDU organizes courses and social programs for sponsored students during holiday periods, and helps them plan their moves back to Saudi Arabia and to new or existing roles at Saudi Aramco.
