Armed Forces Students

The University College of Estate Management has a rich and treasured history of supporting the Armed Forces.

During the Second World War, the College of Estate Management (as it was then known) delivered correspondence courses to over 13,000 service personnel at home and abroad. The College also worked with the British Red Cross to deliver courses to prisoners of war across Europe. This scheme provided prisoners with an intellectual stimulus and, at some camps, groups worked together to teach each other – earning themselves the nickname of ‘the barbed wire universities’.

Fast-forward to today, and UCEM proudly continues to support the Military.
