Undergraduate Leadership Programme

What is the Undergraduate Leadership Programme?

The Undergraduate Leadership Programme (ULP) is designed to give students at all levels an in-depth understanding of the unique leadership skills required for a unique engineering career.

The programme consists of four phases, three take place on your campus after lectures have finished and a final 2-day event based in Portsmouth provides the real Royal Navy Experience.

For students who want to push themselves beyond the programme, there is an exclusive, six-week paid internship for 12 undergraduates who demonstrate a real instinct for leadership and have the passion for engineering required to be a Royal Navy Engineer Officer. Successful applicants have the unique opportunity to work across the different engineering disciplines and branches of the Naval Service, in aviation, marine and weapons technology.

Please note: there is no obligation to join the Royal Navy if you attend the programme.
