Edinburgh Universities Officers' Training Corps (CEUOTC) is a Territorial Army unit which provides selected university students with an insight into the career opportunities in the British Army.
CEUOTC is split into 3 Training Companies, each providing training and activities for 1st, 2nd and 3rd/4th year students. It is open to students of the following Universities: Edinburgh University, Napier University, Heriot-Watt University and Queen Margaret University.
The role of the OTC is to develop leadership potential of selected university students, raising awareness of the Army’s ethos and building interest in its career opportunities; in order to secure their commitment, whether as officers or as future leaders in their chosen profession, to champion the Army in Society.
The unit trains on most Wednesday evenings, during University term time, from 06:30 pm to 09.30 pm. It conducts a two week camp in early June, with a variety of Camps, expeditions and other activities during the Summer.
