  1. Hi all

    Been thinking of joining up as a Marine Engineer (rating). I'm currently employed as an apprentice maintenance engineer, doing my first year of HNC in uni.

    I'm planning on joining sometime after my HNC (all dependant on the waiting list.....)

    What I would like to know is, what are the oppertunities like for further education in the Royal Navy? Do ratings ever study for degrees? If so what degree would a marine engineer study?

    Any help would be great!

  2. There are ample opportunities to study for a degree whilst serving, and there is funding available to assist you.

    I don't know exactly what degree you should be considering, but clearly an engineering one of some description.

    Excuse brevity, but hope that's a bit of a help for starters.

    Good luck.
