Hi All, Ive got a few questions regarding officer recruitment which for the life of me I cant find anywhere, despite extensive use of the search function, so apologies if these questions have already been asked. Anyways, Ill try to keep them as short and sweet as possible, any help would be much appreciated. How can one go about getting a waiver for the 5 year residency requirement for applying as an officer? One way that I saw was to enlist, then immediately switch to a DE application. Im a British citizen, but have been living in Australia for practically my whole life I will begin my degree when Im 19 (next Feb.), and will either finish at 23 or 24, depending on whether I do a masters. IF I choose to do a masters, will I have enough time to be accepted into Sandhurst before I hit the 26 year limit (assuming I pass AOSB and the Main Board first time), bearing in mind my Residency situation? While at University in Australia, I plan to join the Army reserve. However, this requires that I apply for an Australian Citizenship in the meantime. Will this in any way impact upon my application in the future? I realise these questions are quite specific, and as such most people will probably have no idea what the situation is, but as I said before any answers would be greatly appreciated.
