Hi, if you join the regulars can you transfer to the TA say after 2 years, or do you have to do the minimum before you can transfer? I know it might sound weird but my head is bouncing around atm, i want to go to uni, but i don't think i can handle another 3 years of education right now. The Army looks great for me, but i don't want to get in and wish i went to uni and have to wait 4 years till i can go (though this might not be the case). In an ideal scenario, i would love to do this.... Go in the regulars for 2 years, transfer to the TA whilst doing a Uni course for 3 years then transfer back into the regulars until i finish with a military life. It sounds like i would cause them more hassle than worth it but hey, worth checking if its possible, as this would make me more confident about joining. Thanks, Sammyw.
