Lt Will Jones, the Commanding Officer of the Oxford URNU said:  “It was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and a fantastic opportunity to see the world famous buildings first-hand, which provided a great insight into how the country is governed.”

Oxford is one of 15 URNUs located across the UK offering opportunities to 700 undergraduates from the country’s leading universities.   The URNU aims to broaden understanding of the Royal Navy among university students.

It offers students who show leadership potential the chance to develop these skills through maritime experience and exposure to the Royal Navy’s values and ethos.

The URNU is a chance to experience military life without commitment and gain new skills applicable to all walks of life.
