DSUS is for potential RAF Engineering and Cyberspace Officers, it will pay a Bursary of £5,000 per annum and tuition fees up to £9,250.

All selected DSUS Bursars will become a member of their local University Air Squadron (UAS); students are encouraged to apply to join a local UAS on arrival at university, as being a UAS member will enable you to be fast-tracked through the RAF Bursary selection process.

DSUS will be open to applicants studying a suitable Engineering/Computer Science degree and is available at all UK universities.
