Hi, All. Have searched through the site to death, but am yet to find a post which relates to my question. I am about to finish a degree in Law and History and I'm looking to join the Royal Tank Regiment or the Royal Military Police as a Soldier, first preference being RMP. My recruiter has spoken at length with me as to why I don't want to apply for RMAS and look at Officer entry. In short, I wanted to join the Army at age 18 (as a Soldier, same regiments as above) but was persuaded by my parents to go to Uni and look at my options then. It's now four years on and I still want to do the same as i did at age 18. Basically, my question is: How common is it to find soldiers with degrees? Will my degree help me in my career as a Soldier? Thanks in advance for the replies, happy to answer more questions if you've got them.
