They have a reputation for drinking and shagging. Whether that is good or bad depends on your intent. The experience you can get in an OTC is useful if you want to join the regulars, but not in any way required. Consider it a head start to a marathon rather than a sprint. Bear in mind that OTCs are now all super-OTCs - one named OTC (Oxford, Edinburgh) will actually include a large catchment area of universities in the region. I'd imagine that means, from the OU, you can find a way in based on your location rather than your specific university. OTC exist to include students, in the hope they subsequently join up or have a positive view of the Army, not to exclude them.What are people’s opinions on University OTC? What sort of reputation do they have and are they recommended for potential Officer cadets?
Unsure if I can apply whilst studying via OU
