I am currently applying as a warfare officer (I have my Sift interview tomorrow!), but I just got off the phone from my ACLO and he said I need to decide before AIB, whether I am going for a direct entrant place or a bursary. We are going to talk about it tomorrow after my interview but i wanted to get your thoughts on this... Has anyone completed the foundation degree in Naval Studies for Warfare applicants? How long does this take to complete? And can you top it up with courses you do in the Navy in conjunction with the Open University? Any replies would be appreciated!
