This Armed Forces Day - Saturday 26 June 2021 - the Royal Agricultural University (RAU) is excited to confirm its pledge to support members of the Armed Forces by signing the Armed Forces Covenant.
The Covenant is a promise to the nation to ensure that those who serve, or have served, in the armed forces, and their families, are treated fairly.
Sarah Tennant-Bell, acting Head of Student Services, said: “Here at the RAU we have a long history of supporting the armed forces and we are proud to continue this tradition by today pledging our support to the Armed Forces Covenant.
“As well as offering various funding opportunities, for both undergraduate and postgraduate study, we are also proud to offer our Rural Business Career Transition Course, a unique transition course which we offer in partnership with RuRALink.
“This course is specifically designed for individuals in the military community who are considering developing a follow-on career in management within the agriculture, food and the wider land-based sector and we encourage applications from resettling personnel, veterans, reservists and military spouses.”
