You are registered with your university as either a full time or a part time student. It really doesn't matter how many hours you're doing, it's down to what you're down on paper as. For example, I knew people in "full-time" education who only had 5 hours of lectures per week, but were expected to work part time in a job related to their field of study. I also knew "part-time" students doing their PhD in the evenings and weekends who probably did a full working week in the lab on top of a 9 to 5 job.Tog256 said:Cheers for that
Another question though, if your a student, you cannot be compulsary mobilized if under full time education. Can someone tell me how many hours of study a week full time education is? Because im doing 13 hours now per week and dont want to be mobilized during this course. Thanks
not least because all mobilisation is VOLUNTARY!!norfolk_n_chance said:As a student you're actually NOT exempt from being complusorily mobilised. However, they'll be sensible in whether to ask you to go. Most of the TA exercise what's called Intelligent Mobilisation, which means they will choose the most suitable and available soldier to mobilise, and as a student you're normally right at the bottom of the call-out list, along with people like ... single parents, those who've just started a new job.
As far as I've heard, I've not heard of a single student who was mobilised against his will. If you are mobilised as a student, the university/college can appeal against your compulsory mobilisation, and usually, education institutes win.
Yes and no. And as that's not very helpful read on for the detail.Tog256 said:I thought under the act 1996 bla bla bla, you have to go if called upon, am I wrong? and that if you are called up and say no you go to jail, am I wrong again?
