Officer Entry Standards
The minimum academic requirements for officer entry into the Naval Service are 5 GCSEs at grades A-C, including English Language and Maths, 180 UCAS points from the UCAS tariff table, which must include 2 non-overlapping subjects and each subject must be allocated at least 45 UCAS points. Qualifying subjects must normally have been obtained within a maximum spread of 13 months and be of sufficient academic content. Equivalent educational qualifications are considered.
In-Service Honours Degree
If you have 180 UCAS points or more and want to gain a fully-funded honours degree while already being paid a starting salary of £24,615, then a career in the Royal Navy as an officer is the ideal way to do it. This combines the best of both worlds: you gain an honours degree without accumulating huge students debts and you already have your job guaranteed.
