Support with your education
You can apply for financial support towards achieving the further qualifications you need. Scholarships are awarded based on your predicted grades and performance at a thorough assessment process called the Admiralty Interview Board (AIB).
Eligibility is based on a minimum of 5 GCSEs at level 7 or higher, including Maths and English Language. Scotland, Wales and NI applicants need grade A or higher.
At the end of the scholarship, you will have the opportunity to either start initial officer training as a University Cadetship Entrant (UCE), or move onto an Engineer Defence Undergraduate Scheme. Whichever route you take, once you’ve completed all your training, you’ll need to spend a minimum of 5 years in the Naval Service.
