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. evening all.

    Right now I have looked around, but can't find anything quite matching what I'm searching for.

    In the Army, I'm under the impression you get an annual education allowance or something like that - question is (a, is it true?:)) and b; is it to be used on any courses?

    So if I wanted to do a degree that wasn't going to benefit the Army (media studies for example, not that I would do that subject), would I be able to take it out of the allowance?

    Ta!
     
  2. How about a course on misuse of possessive apostrophes?
     
  3. Yeah I could do with one
     
  4. Sorry mate , no offense meant. twas alcohol induced!
     
  5. heh, none taken, you're right :thumright:

    thanks for the link drain_sniffer :)
     
  6. and dont forget standard learning credits that you can use each and every year
     
  7. I would give it at least a couple of years once you have got through your basc and phase 2 training before you start looking at extra curriculum courses. Concentrate learning the job and if your trade related get through to your class 2 course and soldiering skills before you take on extra burdens like a course.
