Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. I am asking on behalf on my niece who wishes to persue a career in engineering, electrical I believe.

    She is applying for Welbeck, shouldnt be a problem with her expected grades, but then where???

    Army, Airforce or Navy?

    Any advice would be gratefully recvd

  2. What does she want to do? A blindingly simple question i know, but one only she can answer. From that you can narrow down the choices!
  3. as well as her personal aspirations, i'd recommend she got in touch with female REME / Eng Branch / whatever the RN call their engineering officers and get their perspective.

    gender is still an issue in many areas of the forces, some more than others, and it may well influence her choice.

    good luck!
