A tip: online applications will be processed much quicker. Keep checking emails as all letters will be sent by email rather than by post.

Does this mean that there is no longer an initial careers presentation?
Correct but if you want to know more before committing, you can call the number above. If they can't answer your queries, you can have a one to one chat with a careers adviser. The ICP video is now on the RN website.

I'm glad I went when I did, it makes it much more "real" to actually go there and meet RM and RN Officers.. Thanks Ninja

Any idea where on the website the video is Ninja? I can't find it. Is it the 30 min ICP video you're talking about?

The Initial Careers Presentation is broken down into relevant chunks, so you effectively edit it so that you only watch the bits that interest you. You start here: Life in the Royal Navy | Royal Navy

Then follow the links (Officer, Rating, Reservist, etc), then progress to the individual branches to see an overview of each branch that you are eligible for and interested in. This way you don't get to watch irrelevant stuff & can hopefully make an informed choice.

How long should we be waiting after clicking the 'apply' button to getting the full application form? It's been a week.

Time to call them up?

Yep, check your junk mail folder in emails. If no joy, give 'em a bell.

Just to check; I've got my physical application form which I've already got one of my references to scribble on for me. Can I no longer send that in then?

Unfortunately not, it changed to online applications a month ago. If you submit a hard copy application it is unlikely to be processed. In any case, it is far quicker online.

I applied via the website and got a phone call the other day whilst at work asking about the "interest I expressed" via the website. When I told the lady I've already been through the ICP and had started a paper application to then find out it's now all online and that I wanted an electronic application form, she told me I needed to apply via the website. Am I missing something? Thought that was what I did.. how long does it take to e-mail a link? :sign6: I'm sure I applied as it asked me for all my details and which role I wanted to apply for.. any ideas?

Believe that to be an expression of interest. The online application requires academic results, referees and limited medical information.

The expression of interest is the one you fill out on the RN website to confirm eligibility.

The link to the full online form is then emailed - check your junk mail folder.
