UOTC

#1
I am going to Loughborough University in October. And i was thinking of joining the UOTC. Could anybody tell me if they go on expedition trips or mountaineering trips in the holidays? Also i am thinking about a career in the Army as an REME/Artillery Officer. Will the UOTC be a true representation of the army or not?

In a word: No.

It's not designed to be, it's rather nebulous aim is to give the future leaders of the nation a taste of Army life so that they will be more appreciative and understanding in the future.

In practical terms, this means makes UOTCs student societies with guns and extended opening hours. A local TA Unit would give you a more realistic feel of the Army, but on the other hand a UOTC would give you a wider 'cap-badge' experience owing to the sub-unit affiliations.

BTW there's a whole UOTC forum on the site, check that out for the Adv Trg opportunities.
