That's excellent thanks for the info. It would be very helpful to see that presentation, I've signed up for it online. Cheers.Hi @J9R4W ,
I must warn you that you are up against a tight time-line, because the upper age limit for entry to Sandhurst is below 30 years on the first day of the Commissioning Course.
It would certainly not be impossible to achieve that, but it would require a considerable degree of focus on the application and no delays in the process – whether those be documentary, medical, or either of the two separate stages of selection through the Army Officer Selection Board at Westbury.
Quite apart from the Sandhurst upper age limit, the Infantry, also look increasingly carefully before accepting officer cadets from Sandhurst who are within a year or two of age 30 – because of the physical and leadership demands of the work of a junior commissioned officer. Some of the other Arms & Corps can sometimes afford to be less discriminatory.
Although it is very sensible to research various roles at this stage please note that Officer Cadets in Junior Term have the opportunity to learn more about the different Corps and Arms that make up the British Army, allowing them to make an informed decision when they come to decide which one they wish to commission into at the end of their time at RMAS. This, of course, is subject to Regimental Selection Boards in Term two.
You may find it useful to attend the RMAS insight day (online) on 12 April 22. You will have the opportunity to hear from serving Army officers, Officer Cadets and Army careers staff, all of whom will be on hand to answer your questions during and after the presentation. The presentation will deliver an indepth look at life at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst and will give you a chance to voice any questions you may have.
