Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS)

Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS)

Newcastle is one of only 10 UK universities taking part in the DTUS: a sponsorship scheme for students interested in a scientific, engineering or technical career in the armed forces or the Ministry of Defence.

Visit the Student Enquiries knowledge base for student information on COVID 19 and IT systems issues.

You receive an annual bursary of £4,000, as well as training pay for the activities that you take part in. You can also earn a reserve forces bounty for completing a specified number of training days.

You will become a member of your chosen service’s reserve forces and will hold the rank of Officer Cadet (Midshipman for Royal Navy-sponsored students).
