Joining

Hi guys.

just wanted to say Hello as this is my first post in the forum. I have just finished my application to join the RNR as a general entry officer, I still have one year of studies left to get my hons (Bsc).

I was curious if anyone can tell me, once I complete my studies can I go straight into the full-time navy process or do I have to wait a certain number of months before this is possible? Also I see you have to do two full weeks at BRNC for weapons training and such, do they still take into account that I am a full time student and can I still devote some time to studying etc?

Cheers for any information guys, looking forward to get started.

Evening.

If you are a student, and have the long summer holiday, I suggest that you apply for the AOP as we call it - In short this is the scheme designed precisely for bods like you. You will do eight weeks at BRNC and (I think) HMS Excellent and complete the entire officer new entry course in one hit.

In essence you get paid for your summer instead of sitting on a Greek beach catching Covid.

Evidently there is the small issue of passing an AIB first. However I would strongly suggest (as ever) that you engage with the unit you intend to join and express an interest in the Accelerated Officer Programme.

That’s excellent I had no idea about an accelerated course, something I shall bring up with I speak to my recruitment officer.

I was planning on going to Greece in the summer as well as it’s where the partner is from . Guess they’ll be told to go on their own now
