Hey folks! I am new to this site and joined as I am considering joining the army as an officer. Whilst I am really excited about the prospect of joining, I am very unsure as to what my chances are and what I am up against. I am looking to start training in about 18 months time (as I need to finish my forensic psychology degree). I was wondering how many people apply and how many people are actually accepted onto the training at Sandhurst? I did ask the army recruitment centre but they were unable to give the information. I am also concerned that I don't have a military background; I currently work in HIV and Sexual Health. I have always worked during my degree and have had a variety of jobs: assistant psychologist, research assistant, clinical database administrator to name a few. I also teach in a school for 1 day a week - I teach the aimhigher programme and increase participation into HE. Also, I don't intend to stay in the army for a very long time. I intend to serve about 5 years then leave to do my clinical psychology doctorate. Any advice and answers to my questions would be welcomed.
