The Scottish Oil Club welcomes the participation of students from universities. While the Club does not have a special category of "student" membership, students at universities which hold corporate membership have all the privileges of corporate members of the Club (except the ability to book a table at the Annual Dinner, a priviledge reserved for the university leaders). See the Membership List at right for the current list of corporate members.
Students are welcome to attend the monthly meetings of the Club. Attendance at the presentation is currently free of any charge; however so that we can predict the head-count we would appreciate booking for presentations only.
Students are also welcome to attend the dinners at the monthly meetings of the Club; however for these payment for the dinner is required
The Scottish Oil Club provides a student sponsorship programme where by the Club and members sponsor the cost of dinners for a limited number of students at the dinner meetings of the Club. These programmes are coordinated by a local staff member at the university.
Directory of Members
The Scottish Oil Club Directory of Members is published as an HTML electronic file which is readable using your internet browser software. Copies are provided to members upon them joining, and at intervals, and sent out upon request. We send it out as a ZIP file as we have learned that some corporate security systems block HTML attachments in email. The document is marked for use by members only and should not be released to non-members of the Scottish Oil Club.
The Directory of Members is not available on this web site.
