alrite everyone,

new to the site and am hoping to join the royal marines. was looking at joining the RMP and then stumbled across the RM and it just hit me and i realised this was definitely for me. Am currently halfway through a business economics degree at uni but do not really want to enter at officer level. just wondering are they quite pushy and try and encourage you to do the POC like the army?
Also if you joined the RMR could you transfer to become a "full-time" marine.
cheers
Jackson

Nah they wont push, they will recommend you to try it but the decision is yours.
When I went initially it was for officer, but I later decided it prefer to be other rank marine. They supported me fully :smile:

Yes you can transfer, but in many respects RMR is harder than just waiting till after uni, due to time contraints of doing training in sections and your life to think about. Takes alot of dedication to go this route if you have a job / uni etc.
