48 weeks or 44?

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I was wondering if anybody knows how long the course is at Sandhurst. The Army website says it is 44 weeks and 48 weeks on separate parts of the website. Is this because the different intakes have different course lengths? Eg. May 44, sept 48. Also, it says the second and their term are 14 weeks long each. Does that make the first term 16/20 weeks?
  2. 44 weeks not including leave. Add in leave etc. it's basically a year. I started on 8th Jan and finished mid Dec.
  3. It is 44 weeks ; 3 x 14 week terms and 2 x weeks of AT (at least a week in each block of leave). You may also get some leave between terms.
