The UOTC provides a standard of experience and training that is well respected within the Army, and highly sought after by numerous civilian employers.
The UOTC also develops leadership through Sport and Adventurous Training. Each unit has teams for most major sports and in Adventurous Training, you can experience everything from kayaking to rock climbing.
