The Defence Technical Undergraduate Scheme (DTUS) is a university sponsorship programme for students who want to join the Royal Navy, British Army, Royal Air Force or Engineering and Science branch of the MOD Civil Service as technical officers after they graduate.
DTUS students awarded a bursary of £4,000 per year along with training pay for attending exercises and activities and an additional bounty for those students who complete 27-35 days of training which means most DTUS scholars receive between £5,500 and £6,000 per year. All DTUS students at the University of Birmingham are supported by Taurus Squadron.
In return, students are expected to remain physically fit and pass an annual fitness test, advance each academic year and serve for a minimum of three years as an officer after graduating.
