It is that time of year again when we encourage Year 11 pupils to think about a career in the Army as an engineering officer.

Welbeck Defence 6th Form College in Leicestershire offers unrivalled facilities and academic rigour to bright students who wish to pursue a career in engineering in the Army (Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers, the Royal Engineers, the Royal Signals or the Royal Logistics Corps) and benefit from the generous bursaries available at University. In order to make the most of this excellent opportunity we would encourage students who are predicted A/B grade in maths and physics to apply for the Welbeck Competition.

Applications can be made online at and are open until 9 Jan 2016. The selection boards take place in March 2015 and successful candidates will take their places at Welbeck in September 16 if they achieve 40 UCAS points in their top 7 GCSEs (see attached factsheet for scoring guide).

Please find all the information you need about Welbeck College below including the generous financial bursary available to successful candidates.
