Armed Forces

Are you ex-armed forces and wondering what the skills and knowledge you've acquired during your career are worth back in the civilian world? Fill in the assessment form and find out. 

Under the Enhanced Learning Credits scheme, ex-armed forces personnel can earn up to two thirds of an undergraduate degree and up to two thirds of a masters degree, based on the training and knowledge they acquired while serving. Read our FAQs to find out more about the scheme and what you need to do next. 

The scheme assesses your skills and experience, and even includes those acquired without formal training. You don't necessarily need to have any formal qualifications such as GCSEs or A levels to start a course. 

It's a great opportunity for someone who has served to find out what possibilities exist for them in the civilian world and get a head start in finding a new career.
