Application Process

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by CalCi, Feb 10, 2015.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

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

  1. I'm thinking of joining in the engineering branch. Currently studying for my Degree and hoping to go on and do a Masters. Just wondering if anybody could give me an overview of the application process and how long it all takes?

    I know it is early to be thinking about it, but I'm not getting any younger ( time flies).

    Thanks, any advice greatly appreciated!
  2. The application process goes as follows (Very simplified)

    - Fill out the application form.
    -Take a recruit test
    -Formal interview
    -Medical/eye test
    -Fitness test
    -Pre Royal Navy Course

    (Not necessarily in that order)

    Once all these are passed and completed it's on to basic training.

    I applied to become a engineering technician (Marine engineering) less than a year ago and i start my basic training in April. That also included a 3 month gap due to shin splints.

    If you're currently studying for a degree and thinking about a masters then definitely speak to your AFCO as I'm pretty sure you can get financial help towards it if you're definitely going to join. A degree also means you can join as an officer too which you should definitely go for if you can. (I wish i had one!!) This will take a longer than the normal process though
    and require additional interviews and tests.

    Hope this helps.
