A STUDENT LIFE LESS ORDINARY
The Exeter University Officers' Training Corps (EUOTC) offers a unique experience to university students looking to challenge and develop themselves, make life-long friends and get paid.
Training takes place in Exeter on a Wednesday evening during term time and at other locations over the south west on weekends. Once a year we conduct a two week training period.
You will receive internationally recognised Military and leadership training along with the opportunity to immerse yourself in a variety of sports and adventurous training activities. The training is designed to fit around your academic commitments, and you are under no obligation to join the Regular Army or Army Reserves.
