Officer entry without a degree

I'm considering the possibility of not going to university and attempting to go to Sandhurst without a degree, after sixth form I think I would ski instruct for a couple of seasons (I'm already in the process of getting ski instructing qualifications). So this would leave me at the age of 20 and entering Sandhurst, I was wondering if promotion prospects were lowered if you were to enter as an officer without a degree as opposed to entering with a degree. And also, after say 5 years of being an army officer and going through the sandhurst process what job prospects would be available? Would sandhurst be equivalent to a degree?

If you're not going to Uni, how the hell are you going to do a ski-instructors course after Uni?

Get your story straight and go to the ACIO.

Now, jog on.
