I recently asked my education centre about A Levels/Degrees and was told if your in your last 2yrs of service you can study anything. However if you haven’t put your chit in and want further education the course has to benefit the Corp.
Royal Marines Police - Certificate in knowledge of Policing
Combat Intelligence - Strategical planning Diploma
Anyone got any more info on this?
Sorry just to clarify- does that mean you cannot study at all until you’ve served a minimum 8years? Or you just can’t use your enhanced learning credits to study for 8years?This is only the case if you want the Corps to fund it. If you have served 8 years you can use your enhanced learning credit to pay for any educational course you want within reason. There are also schemes that accredit your previously completed training against educational credit. Suprised your education centre didn't go through this with you.
You can study in your own time from day 1 if you have the time but are unlikely to get any additional funding from the military. Your enhanced learning credits kick in at the 8 year point which you can use against degree funding. The comment made by Rossi above highlights the need to plan against a number of scenarios. It takes a long time to get a degree part time and as such you must consider how your circumstances may change over he period of your study.Sorry just to clarify- does that mean you cannot study at all until you’ve served a minimum 8years?
