The Defence STEM Undergraduate Scheme

Computer Science, Cyber Security, Aerospace, Mechanical.

The Defence STEM Undergraduate Scheme is a chance for future Royal Navy Weapon, Marine and Aircraft Engineer Officers to have their university tuition fees paid (up to £9,250 per year) and receive a bursary of £5,000 annually, before being guaranteed a place in training for an exciting and varied career.

You can join the scheme at any point during university, as long as you have at least one year left to finish. You will become a member of your local University Royal Naval Unit, giving you a rare insight into the life of a Naval Officer whilst studying. This will give you opportunities to practice core naval skills during your spare time such as navigation, whilst undertaking Adventurous Training activities your friends would not get to experience.
