I joined under OCTP. I picked up a BA later in my career under UTPO. In my view there was no requirement for a combat arms junior officer to have a degree. For those chosen for higher command and staff positions where critical thinking was required, absolutely. But not for cannon fodder (which OCTP was in brutal terms). From my OCTP perspective, RMC was more of a boys' club than anything else. We should have used the excellent educational resources of RMC to educate officers who were moving beyond regimental duty.
