You don’t need a degree to discover your full potential.

If you’re determined to do more with your future, becoming an Army Officer will get you off to a great start. To do something that really matters. To make friends for life. It’s your chance to train at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, build transferable skills, and go on adventures at home and abroad.

You’ll learn everything from fundamental skills like outdoor survival and weapons handling, to military strategy and the theoretical elements of leadership. You’ll train alongside fellow recruits from all over the world and make some of the best friends you’ve ever had.

  • Competitive pay of £25,984, rising to £31,232 upon completion of training
  • Six weeks’ paid leave
  • Worldwide travel as part of your job
  • Adventurous Training such as skiing and scuba diving
  • Free gym and sports facilities

When you complete the course you’ll become a Second Lieutenant and undertake specialist training that will prepare you for your specific role in the Army, from commanding a platoon of 30 paratroopers to intelligence officer or helicopter pilot. You’ll then take command of your soldiers, leading by example and looking after their best interests.

You’ll have immediate responsibility that could see you rising to the rank of Captain after three years and Major thereafter. Plus, a starting salary of over £25k, which will rise to over £30k when you complete your training as an Officer. This is your chance to succeed, without the debt – and so much more.
