Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

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

  1. Ok I'm in rep.of ireland and working towards my honours business degree in tourism and sport management (fitness instructor & personal trainer included in it), What kind of job would i get in the army with this. Enlisted or officer??? Mostly interested in the royal irish, para, AAC (Have a love of flying) or saying i have a cavalry background here maybe a armoured unit. Anyone able to tell me a few Specialist areas i could get into with this.

    P.S. If i wanted to do a masters in sport psychology would the army give me any help? Thanks guys sorry if this is in the wrong area
     
  2. You would probably get a commission in the West Yorkshire Sports Management Fusiliers (Reeboks Own). Failing that, the RMP would snap you up. Most of their officer graduates have shit degrees like yours.
     
  3. LOL thanks, ya don't like red caps i take it
     
  4. Tourism and sports management...........mildly less irritating then 'media studies'
     
  5. PQOs are doctors, nurses, vets, lawyers and padres. You will not be a PQO.

    In real terms, 'A. N. Other' degree buys you nothing. If you don't have the required UCAS points for officer entry, then you can go for soldier entry. If you have enough UCAS points for officer entry, then you can go for soldier or officer entry. The choice between the two is not which is better, it's which you think you'd be best at.
     
  6. well it is a business/management degree, i'm sure it would be of some good as a officer
     
  7. Dear oh dear. Yes it will, it will be useful to wipe your arse with on exercise! It's the skills developed within a degree that are useful, not the degree itself.
