University Officers' Training Corps - a society with a difference

The University Officers’ Training Corps (UOTC) is an Army Reserve unit that recruits exclusively from university students. Its aim is to train the future generation of Officers for both the Regulars and Reserves, however, there is no commitment to join after university.

The University Officers’ Training Corps (UOTCs) offers a unique experience to university students looking to challenge and develop themselves, make life-long friends and get paid.

You will receive internationally recognised Military and leadership training along with the opportunity to immerse yourself in a variety of sports and adventurous training activities. The training is designed to fit around your academic commitments, and you are under no obligation to join the Regular Army or Army Reserves.

UOTCs run many competitive sport teams in many disciplines such as Rugby, Hockey, Netball, Football and much more. As an Officer Cadet you will be supported to try new sports and even compete at the highest levels in your chosen field.

Adventurous Training features strongly throughout the UOTC year and enables Officer Cadets to test and stretch their limits. You can train in anything from kayaking in the UK to skiing the Alps, rock climbing in Bavaria and everything in between.
