BSc(Hons) Armed Forces

Discussion in 'Army Reserve' started by Scavenger, Jan 13, 2011.

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. RNR/RAF, do you think OTC's would allow in people from poly's.

    Not sure if we allow poly students into out ranks, we might have some in driving trades
  2. It's an interesting way of getting new recruits in through the doors of all of the Midlands TA units. I'll have a look and see if there's any information about exactly what they're going to be instructing on the course.
  3. BSc (Hons) Armed Force:

  4. What's it for though? Nurse no, engineer no.
    Majority will do other degrees then sandhurst

    A development of the Public services course maybe?
  6. But for who, some civvie post conflict reconstruction firm
  7. I dont know much about the content of the course other than that it is an extension of the public services course run in colleges. One of the conditions of them being accepted onto the course is that they must join a local unit. Im in a TA unit in Wolverhampton and we had a number of potential recruits come to us on Tuesday night so it seems that it could be a positive thing for recruitment.
  8. Sounds like the sort of no value money spinning degree that will be done away with in the very near future.
  9. Do it distance style, and allow non-grad officers to study post RMAS.

    Sounds like a good degree, in that it covers a great many of subjects that are relevant to a member of the forces. Not only are the usual benefits of a degree (constructive thinking, writing etc), but also a depth of knowledge is provided.

    Probabaly better to have such a degree and be an officer than say.... the history of art. Or some similar degree.
  10. Why? It seems to mostly deal with stuff you would learn at Sandhurst or as part of your specialist training. Better to study something in more technical depth (e.g. engineering) or stick to theory of art or somesuch to keep your brain ticking over.
  11. Exactly my thought - the subjects seemed geared towards that rather than defeating the enemy.
  12. Yep, probably the course is just in the wrong place, quite like the idea of distance learning
  13. Often thought it could be a way of getting more non-grad officers in. Then they could spend longer as Plt Cdrs. Points from RMAS, and some sort of distance package with subjects that are relevant to Middle to Upper management of the Army.
