Armed Forces

As a society spanning both the Cambridge and Chelmsford campuses we hope to bring together likeminded individuals with a shared interest in gaining experience and bettering themselves.

Our objectives are:

  • To promote the values and ethos of the British Armed Forces and their role in today's society
  • To provide students with skills in leadership and management to increase employability
  • To asssist and provide information on any applications to the British Armed Forces


Our society welcomes everyone, whether you wish to join the military or just want to have some fun through guest speakers, extracurricular activites, networking and socials.


We are an affiliate society of

  • Cambridge University Air Squadron
  • Cambridge University Royal Naval Unit and
  • Cambridge Officers Training Corps

Which each offer numberous oportunities and leadership experiences.

Joining our society does not oblige membership with said organisations.
