I'm 18 years old and currently struggling to decide between going to university or continuing with my navy application and hopefully joining as an aircrewman. I managed to pass my FATs down at RAF Cranwell and currently waiting on my aircrew medical. However, I do have an offer from a university to study accountancy and finance and wondering what my best bet would be. Obviously I'm not completely in the clear with the aircrew application as there's the chance things may not go well with the aircrew medical or the PRNC but for the sake of the question let's say they do. I know a lot more about life at university than I do about life in the Navy and know that the university is something that I would enjoy for a whole host of reasons, however I'm still unclear about what life would be like while serving in the Navy for someone my age and whether or not I should just try and go straight in. I'm wondering if my experience in the Navy have any similarities to university? Would I missing out if I don't go to university? I'm also wondering whether or not there will be a lot of people similar in age or should I go to university and come back when I'm a few years older and a bit more mature? One problem I have with the aircrewman role is its transferability into civilian life. Would I struggle to find a job if I leave the navy without a degree? It would be good to get some opinions, cheers.
