The Yorkshire Officer Training Regiment (YOTR) was formed on 1st September 2011 from Sheffield and Leeds UOTCs. The YOTR attracts students from universities across Yorkshire, including Huddersfield, Hull, Leeds, Sheffield and York.

What do we offer?

Yorkshire OTRYou will join us at an exciting time as the Yorkshire OTR has been formed by the merger of Leeds and Sheffield UOTCs to create one larger, more efficient unit. We will train together, when possible, giving students the chance to socialise and work with a variety of people from across universities and colleges in the region.

Yorkshire OTR gives its members the opportunity to learn a little about the military and a lot about themselves. The YOTR is about your personal development, bringing out qualities you may not even think you possess, making friends and, above all else, it is about having fun.

The opportunities include:

  • Military training with a focus on leadership development and teamwork
  • Adventure training such as rock climbing, skiing and skydiving - often conducted overseas
  • Sports such as rugby, football, netball and hockey
  • An unrivalled social life
  • The opportunity to gain the CMI Leadership Award

Yorkshire OTR welcomes new Officer Cadet candidates once a year during Fresher's Week.


Training is military-based and takes place on Wednesday nights at Carlton Barracks in central Leeds, Somme Barracks in Sheffield and in Worsley Barracks, York; and on a number of weekends throughout the year, depending on when students have their exams. Each year there are a number of two-week training periods, which have recently been held overseas.
