Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

The Defence STEM Undergraduate Scheme (DSUS) will open for new applications in Oct 2022 for those students who graduate from 2025 onwards, with selected students starting on the scheme from Sep 2023.

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

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.
