While each of the degrees has a distinct curriculum the below are some example of the modules you will study:

Year 1 provides a sound foundation in the principal academic subjects upon which the remainder of the course is built, principally military history, civil engineering and medicine. Your first year programme will include modules that provide a context for your degree as well as core ‘study skills’ which will help you acquire the necessary scholastic abilities to fully engage in an honours degree programme.

Year 2 focuses more closely upon the knowledge and skills relevant to a professional member of HM Armed Forces. Not only will you learn about subjects such as structural mechanics, critical care and counter insurgency but you will also study leadership skills, etc.

Year 3 in your final year you will again engage in more subject specific modules that have been designed to acquaint you more fully with some of the skills needed by specialist branches of HM Armed Forces. You will study subjects such as environmental engineering, emergency care in action and military law, etc. You may also complete a research project based around your reserve or TA service provided that you satisfy the entry requirements.
