Im 21 and about to start my second year of university and am considering joining the TA but i have a few questions. I also wouldnt mind hearing from other students who are considering or have joined the TA while studying just for their opinions on the matter. what happens after you finish training? What is the minimum length of service for the TA? Can you quit any time? Do you get paid as soon as you finish training? I want to be a games artist and am currently studying that subject at teesside university, but the more i think about it the more i dont think i would be satisfied with that job alone as really even though i love it, it is really quite a humdrum job that contributes to no one but the employer. I wouldnt mind some excitement before i get glued to a chair for the rest of my life. On top of the questions above thers also the concerns of getting mobilised and things like balancing my life and work life around TA as im not sure this is for me as my career and education are my goals and if forced to choose they would win. And even though i hate to admit it the though of being mobilised is quite an intimidating one to say the least. Cheers Watson p.s i have ordered the info packs but i just had to ask some questions now to stop myself from crawling the ceiling until the info gets here.
