Hello,

I'm at a crossroads in terms of what I want to do post sixth-form.

Considering I'm someone who wants a languages-based career, I have very much felt that a career in the RAF as an Intelligence Analyst (Linguist) will help me to fulfil my languages potential. Moreover, the variety of benefits the RAF provides to its employees were what I also found attractive, such as subsidised food, housing, gym, healthcare, worldwide travel and paid holiday.

Yet, in a day and age as competitive as ours, getting a degree has increasingly become a prerequisite for most jobs. However, when comparing the language qualifications (though not degree-based) and experience of a candidate fresh out of the RAF, to a graduate fresh out of university with a languages degree, which candidate would an employer be most likely to choose?

And my final question would be, is it best, or worth it, to get the degree first, or dive into the RAF straight away?

Thanks,
Yours,
