The Army Officer Internship is an opportunity to experience the role of an Army Officer for 6 to 18-months before, during or after University.
After 9 weeks world class leadership training at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst with further training afterwards, depending on your role, you will then spend 6 to 18 months attached to a regular Army unit, in the UK and on routine duties around the world, shadowing the daily role of an Army Officer, learning to lead up to 30 soldiers. You will be paid throughout and take part in sports, adventurous training and military training exercises but you will not deploy on operations.
An Officer Internship offers unique and exceptional leadership training and experience, as well as an unrivalled insight into the life of an Army Officer. Once you have completed your internship, you can elect to remain in the Army, as a Reservist or regular Army Officer, or you can choose a completely different career path.
Anyone with a firm place to read a first degree at a University or College, or who has graduated within the last 2 years, can apply.
You should also:
You must pass Army Officer Selection Board.
You do not have to continue serving in the Army after your internship, but we do hope that you will. You will be qualified to continue to serve as an officer in the Army Reserve both during and after university; or you can complete the Regular Commissioning Course if you'd like to serve as a full-time Army Officer.
