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! Thanks.
