    Hi, I am very interested in becoming a Royal Air Force Officer, Logistics to be specific. I am not very keen on going to university mainly because I want to work and join the Royal Air Force sooner, rather than later. Would not going to university be a disadvantage? Or is it leadership potential and management skills that the RAF are looking for?Thanks

    It is not a prerequisite (for that role, at least) but it does stand you in better stead.

    You are right in saying that they are looking for your leadership potential, but few people get the chances to prove they have that potential from school or sixth form college.

    There's also the question of what happens should you leave the RAF?
