First of all hello to everyone on here, just doing my first research into becoming a Royal Marine...however I am in my second year of University doing a Psychology degree. I intend to finish it and then look into joining but I am wondering whether many people wih degrees join the regular commandos or if most go for officer training?

Also does anyone know if there is much difference in the life of a Royal Marine Commando or a Royal Marine Officer (dreaded class divides etc.)

Thanks fors your help lads and take care!

Hi and welcome to the forum! I have a degree and i am joining as a regular marine. There are a number if people on this forum that are joining the regulars and hold a degree or know a good few regulars with a degree. Loads of info on the site relating to differences between the training for Officers and other ranks, as well as a number of books that will give you an inside view into the life. Need any help just ask, majority of the people here are extremely helpful.

Alright mate, I joined as a regular Marine and I have a degree. From what I remember there were atleast 3 other lads in my troop who had degrees aswell.
I would have thought most lads going for officer training have a degree, if only due to it being so competitive to get a place in a troop. Theres only one intake a year and a troop is about 40-50 recruits.
