    What are your thoughts?

    As someone in the army now taking part time degree, I think you should wait till you "settle down" in your NS vocation first before you decide to take a part time degree or not. There are many unexpected events in NS that may affect your course of study. Application of study leave is also very subjective because you are an NSF. Best scenario is that your working hours in NS is 8-5, little or no ad-hoc events(exercise/guard duty) and having a good superior helps.

      Hi,

      โ€‹

      I recommend going for a degree whether it is part-time or full-time.

      However, I would not recommend studying while NS'ing. On the other hand, you could figure out what are the modules that you would be taking as a student...then, just start familiarising yourself with the topic...you would have close to 2 years to do so...this is like a pre-study.

      โ€‹

      As you won't have the same pressure as your peers (who are studying) you would have 2 extra years to assimilate and even, deepen your understanding of the modules...without even sitting in the classroom...it is a head-start.

      โ€‹

      Make use of your extra time to "pre-study" as mentioned above AND also to understand what it takes to be an amazing RM in a bank.

      โ€‹

      Life is about seizing every opportunity to create your own unfair advantage.

      โ€‹

      Hope it helps
