University Air Squadron Bursary Scheme (UAS BS)

Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

The University Air Squadron (UAS) offers a unique chance to sample RAF life. Our main role is to attract ambitious and intelligent students into a career as an RAF officer, but joining us doesn’t necessarily mean you have to join the RAF.

As well as specialist training and the chance to fly, you will learn valuable leadership and team-building skills.

You will also have the opportunity to take part in numerous sports and adventurous training such as rock climbing, skiing and sailing – both in the UK and abroad.

Women should be defined by actions not clichés. Every role in the RAF is open to everyone. From spare time to the front line.

Selection

Prior to joining a UAS, candidates should attend a freshers' fair or other event, to meet students and staff, and learn more about the UAS they hope to join.

Candidates should have at least two years remaining on their current degree programme, and should meet the eligibility criteria.

All UASs carry out selection interviews and fitness assessments prior to the candidate joining the squadron.

COVID-19 update - RAF recruitment remains open; our team are on hand via online chat and social media. All face-to-face visits to AFCOs are suspended. If you have applied, please click on the careers website link to see the progress of your application. We will continue recruiting once the current situation changes, as we are constantly looking for the next generation of innovators and engineers.
