File: Military Education Committee and Senior Training Corps

Scope and Content

File concerning the administration of the University's Senior Training Corps, which provided military training for University students (it was previously known as the Officers' Training Corps). The STC included UMIST students and in 1974 was renamed the Manchester and Salford Universities Officers Training Corps. The STC was overseen by the Military Education Committee, with this Committee also responsible for assisting University graduates who wished to join the Armed Forces. The file is mostly routine correspondence with Ministry of War/Defence and military officials concerning the appointment of commanding and training officers for the Corps.
