Bristol University Officer Training Corps (BUOTC) is one of 18 University OTCs. It serves the Universities of Bristol, Bath and University of the West of England.

Bristol University Officer Training Corps (BrUOTC) aims to develop the leadership potential of selected university students and raise awareness of the Army's ethos.

BrUOTC offers a programme of activities based on military training, adventurous training, sport and social events. We structure our programme to suit the academic timetables of our universities.

Training takes place on Wednesday evenings and specified weekends.
