Bit of background info first. I applied to join Royal Engineers just over a year ago but due to having had physio within a year I was given a medical defferal. The motorbike injury that caused this (knee) doesnt give me any problems now, nor then. I went in to work then decided to study an Access to Sports Science course (pre-degree) which is one year with the intention of getting a degree. I am now at a point where I can re-apply to the army. My question is what is the best way to combine getting a degree and joining? As I see it I have three options. Join then study after having served in the army. Do UOTC whilst studying or join then study part time whilst in the army. Does anybody know the pros and cons of these and anyone with experience with having studied in any of these ways? I am now 24, will be 25 in the summer for reference. I have been in contact with the recruiting office and the Sgt I have been speaking to has left it in my hands so just trying to gether as much info/opinion as possible. Thankyou for any help/guidance as this is giving me a bit of a headache!
