Army Officer Internship

Save to shortlist Saved to shortlist Apply now

The Army Officer Internship is an opportunity to experience the role of an Army Officer for 6 to 18-months before, during or after University.

What makes an officer?

You'll be... A born leader. A problem solver. Curious.

After 9 weeks world class leadership training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst with further training afterwards, depending on your role, you will then spend 6 to 18 months attached to a regular Army unit, in the UK and on routine duties around the world, shadowing the daily role of an Army Officer, learning to lead up to 30 soldiers.

You will be paid throughout and take part in sports, adventurous training and military training exercises but you will not deploy on operations.

An Officer Internship offers unique and exceptional leadership training and experience, as well as an unrivalled insight into the life of an Army Officer. Once you have completed your internship, you can elect to remain in the Army, as a Reservist or regular Army Officer, or you can choose a completely different career path.

Who can apply?

Anyone with a firm place to reach a first degree at a University or College, or who has graduated within the last 2 years, can apply.

You should also:

  • Be aged between 17 years 9 months and 28 years old by mid-September of the year you will start training at Sandhurst.
  • Hold or be predicted to gain 72 UCAS points (or equivalent) and have 35 ALIS points, including a C/4 or above in English language, maths and a science or foreign language.
  • Be physically fit.

You must pass Army Officer Selection Board.

Skills you’ll gain:

  • Learning how to overcome physical and mental challenges
  • Developing your leadership qualities and gaining key management skills

You do not have to continue serving in the Army after your internship, but we do hope that you will. You will be qualified to continue to serve as an officer in the Army Reserve both during and after university; or you can complete the Regular Commissioning Course if you'd like to serve as a full-time Army Officer.

How to apply?

To apply, simply register for an account and fill out the online application form. This should only take a few minutes. Once you're in the process, you'll have plenty of support from our team.

We've signed the Gradcracker feedback pledge.

(This means that we will supply feedback if requested after an interview.)
