Hi folks,

If you're in the UK, then it's been all about snow over the last few weeks. It may have looked beautiful but it brought almost the entire country to a standstill with flights cancelled, offices closed and cars and trains unable to go anywhere. We hope that you got through the worst of Storm Emma unscathed and only slightly inconvenienced.

Of course, the UK military were quick to jump into action, helping get supplies through to people in need, helping NHS staff get to work and back, clearing snow and moving stranded vehicles. As ever, we have to wonder what we would do without them.

As the temperature gradually rises, we hope this newsletter brings a little more sunshine to your day!

Drop us a line on [email protected] if there's anything you'd like us to add to this newsletter.

5 good reasons for doing a university management degree online

  1. To get significantly more money
  2. If you want a career, not just a job
  3. To make resettlement much easier
  4. For international opportunities
  5. Your Services role makes it uniquely possible at this time.

www.onlineuniversitymilipol.com  works with military and ex-military candidates worldwide. We pilot you through the university acceptance process by turning your Services experience into ‘academic points’ so that you are offered an online university place. There is no charge for this work (i.e. it is paid by the university’s online provider) so you can find out if you comply without obligation. We remain with you throughout your study and will even attend the graduation ceremony on your behalf if you are abroad.

The cost of online study is significantly less than that of attending university and, more importantly, you do not need to stop working whilst gaining your degree.

One of the big advantages of online study is flexibility, particularly when you are unable to commit to a fixed weekly schedule. You might even finish earlier than an attending student if you are able to put in more time but your qualification and benefits will be exactly the same. Additionally, you can start immediately after acceptance rather than waiting for the next year like an attending student.

Joke: Talking Dog

A man walks into a bar with his dog.

"This is a talking dog. If this dog can answer my questions, who will buy me a drink?" he asks.

"You can have one on the house," the bartender says.

The man turns to his dog. "What goes on the top of a house?"

Dog: "Roof!"

Man: "What does tree bark feel like?"

Dog: "Rough!"

Man: "Who is the greatest baseball player ever?"

Dog: "Ruth!"

The bartender is clearly annoyed and snaps at the man. "That's enough. You and your dog, get out."

After the man and the dog are thrown out, the dog looks sadly at his owner. "Should I have said DiMaggio?"
