A Level sponsorship


Hi, just a question about the sponsorship in the RN...

I'm doing my GCSEs this year, going on to A levels next year. I'm hoping to go on to join the navy as a Medical Officer, so uni after that.

My question is about the 6th form sponsorship available from the navy. Is there a certain time limit before applying, do they refuse it if your parents earn over a certain amount (I know for EMA you cannot recieve it if they earn less than £12000) and do I just need to call the navy to recieve it?

Apologies if this has been asked before or its in the wrong section! The RN website was very helpful with this matter.

Welcome to Rum Ration

Sponsorship is available for engineering students at A level standard through Welbeck College, not prospective medical students unfortunately.

Medical students can gain sponsorship during the last 3 years of medical degree & should apply via their AFCO at the beginning of year two.

Hi Alex,

As long as you have the basic 5 GCSE's A*-C including maths & English, get in touch with your Armed Forces Careers Office (AFCO), link below, tomorrow and ask to speak with your Area Careers Liaison Officer (ACLO).

Good luck.
