I'm at that stage where I'm beginning to think about my future,becoming a Royal Marines Officer is something which is largely appealing to me, however I do recognise that it's something I would want to go into on a relatively short term basis (<10). I'd like to know some more details about the application process;What degrees are desirable to have? I'm currently studying applied sport science at a reputable uni which i've been told will be a good basis, Aptitude tests, fitness requirements and any thing which I can do to get a better insight into life in the marines?
what other opportunities exist after life as a royal marines officer, i'm interested especially in deep sea diving for petrochemical companies, which i've been told a little bit about from an ex royal?I'd also like to know any details you can give me about day to day life in the marines and your ability to build a life around the job, Is there enough free time to build a succesful social and family life etc. Any advice especially that given by those who have spent time in the marines or are in service now would be greatly appreciated, I know this question goes off on loads of different tangents but any inside information and experience would really help!
Thanks in advance,
