Studying Medicine While in The Service.

Discussion in 'Joining Up - Royal Navy Recruiting' started by MedStudent, May 4, 2013.

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 am looking for some career advice, I am currently an AB1 EW and have been in the Navy for coming up to 4 years. I have managed to get some qualifications during this time and have been accepted for a 6 year Medicine Degree (1 year pre med) starting in 2014. I would like to continue my career in the Navy and become a medical officer.

    Would I have to leave the service and rejoin for this career path? I have been told is that you can only get sponsorship for your last 3 years of Medical School.

    That's correct, the mob aren't going to pay you a wage to go to uni for six years.

    That said, the sponsorship starts at £18k and the remuneration pre-registration onwards, certainly recoups the costs incurred.

    Give the medical recruiting specialists a call after the bank holiday: 02392 727096.

    Good luck.

    Just to add- why not transfer to the RNR during your first 3 years at uni?
