Leeds University Officers’ Training Corps (Leeds UOTC), together with Sheffield University Officers’ Training Corps (SUOTC) is part of Yorkshire Officers’ Training Regiment (YOTR). YOTR is one of only two Officer Training Regiments (OTRs) in the country - the other being North West OTR. The combined strength of the two UOTCs in one regiment ensures Leeds and Leeds Officer Cadets get broader access to training, sports and adventurous training.

What do we offer?

We are like a University Officers’ Training Corps but bigger! Most UOTCs are centralised around one city, however YOTR contains two UOTCs recruiting from universities across Yorkshire. Based primarily within Leeds and Sheffield, with a detachment in York. Each of our UOTCs recruits and trains their officer cadets largely separately, however each year they come together for our annual training exercise and throughout the year. Opportunities for cadets in each UOTC are often available to cadets across the whole of YOTR, meaning if you join one of our UOTCs you will get more opportunities than you would in most other UOTCs in the country.

Everything you need to know about the training you will receive, the opportunities available and how to join our two UOTCs is available via the links below:

Leeds UOTC recruits Students studying at Universities in Leeds, York, Huddersfield, Bradford and Hull.

Sheffield UOTC recruits Students studying at the University of Sheffield and Sheffield Hallam University.
