Officer Cadet Ben Fernando, Oxford UNRU

OCdt Fernando said, “It was a really good few hours and I was delighted when the Chief took such an interest in all areas I showed him.”

CPO Maskell said, "This is a unique experience that is well worth attending at least once. It gave me a new perspective of the environment of the politicians. I did get some strange looks as I walked through the main hall in my No1 uniform though!.”

After a brief tour of Parliament and a drink in one of the many cafes in Westminster, we walked out into a winter wonderland and an anchor faced stroll to see Nelson's column and the ships of the line down Pall Mall.

Oxford is one of 15 URNUs located across the UK offering opportunities to 750 undergraduates from the country's leading universities.

The URNU's mission is: ‘To develop an understanding of the Naval Service in undergraduates, so that those who go into civilian employment are positive advocates thereof and to facilitate a Naval Career for those who choose one.’

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