Where learning meets adventure and engineers meet their future

Welbeck - The Defence Sixth Form College is a co-educational full boarding college, where students are funded by the Ministry of Defence (MOD) on a means tested basis.

It offers an A level education to preselected students following a career as technical or engineering Officers within the armed forces or the MOD civil service.

    How to apply

    All MOD applicants for Welbeck must apply directly to their chosen service. There are approximately 185 places available per year and all students join at the start of the two year A level programme. Applications should be made early in Year 11, or National 5 for Scottish students, and you must meet the entry requirements for your chosen service.

    There are a limited number of Welbeck Private Scheme places available. These are self funded places for students who will have no commitment to pursue a career with the MOD. These students will be required to achieve the same academic entry requirements as sponsored students.
