"The aim of the URNU is to develop an understanding of the Naval Service in undergraduates, so that those who go into civilian employment are positive advocates thereof and to facilitate a Naval Career for those who chose one."
We offer unparalleled opportunities to engage with and learn from some of the most senior members of the Naval Service. We also offer the opportunity to achieve accredited Chartered Management Institute (CMI) leadership qualifications and CV coverage that is rare amongst new graduates. Our training sessions take place on Thursday evenings on a weekly basis during term, at sea during weekends throughout the year and for extended periods during the university Easter and Summer vacation periods.
By completing the standard URNU navigation and seamanship syllabus, members can gain civilian-recognised RYA qualifications at the highest levels as well as having the opportunity to gain other National Governing Body qualifications in sports ranging from parachuting to scuba-diving. URNU members benefit from the same opportunities to undertake Adventurous Training activities as regular Royal Navy personnel including use of the Naval Outdoor Centre in Germany (NOCG) where Skiing, Mountain Biking, Climbing, Mountaineering, Klettersteiging, kayaking and Canoeing can all be undertaken."
