The Defence STEM Undergraduate Sponsorship (DSUS) Scheme offers a new opportunity for STEM Undergraduates interested in a future in Defence, be that either the Royal Navy, Army, Royal Air Force or Ministry of Defence (MOD) Civil Service as Engineers or Technical Officers.

Successful applicants will be sponsored through 3 years of university study, having their Tuition Fees paid for (where applicable) along with a £5,000 annual Bursary and the opportunity to earn up to 45 days paid placements or activity throughout the Academic Year and holiday periods.

Whilst at university the Military students will join their respective University Service Unit (University Royal Navy Unit, University Officer Training Corp or University Air Squadron) which will offer opportunities to familiarise themselves with Military life through attachments in addition to participation in Sporting and Adventurous Training activities, to build fitness and develop leadership skills, that are available to all regular personnel.
