My plan!

Hello all! After being around here at PPRuNe for a few years, Ive learnt a lot about the industry and now, with a few months left att upper secondary school, Im done thinking and, I have come up with a plan. Wether I should head off to uni before this, is another thing I have to think about.

My plan is to head off to Oxford and do the ATPL-Ground School there and, since Ive heard bad things about their Waypoint programe, I will probably head off to Stapelford, BCFT or any of the good modular schools, maybe to return to Oxford for the MCC/JOC.

After reading through the threads about this issue, Im still quite concerend about the fact that some airlines require that you complete everything with one FTO. If you take a look at Norwegia Air Shuttle for example, Norwegian Air Shuttle ASA - APPLICATION FIRST OFFICERS They seem to prefere students from a single education site. If this means, all training with one provider, Im not sure. Another thing I am concerned with is, the first issue of the Medical Class 1. Ive read in the threads and by the schools, that I have to do the first medical visit in the country of training. That would be the UK but, what if I change idea and decide to stay in Sweden after the ATPL and do it there?

The thing is that, Im pretty sure that I will head off to University in September and in that case, I will study to obtain a business degree. It is a subject that I find very interesting and Im sure it will be a benefit both in the airline industry and outside. However, should I not be able to become a pilot, I would like to think for a year or 2 about what I would like to do with my life. Maybe its not business I want to start with. Therefore, I would like to do a medical class 1 visit here in Sweden before starting University, to see if i can become a pilot or not, before I head off to uni. Will this be a problem if I want to train in the UK later on?

Another issue that I havent quite figured out yet is, the country of issue fact. If I do train in the UK and get a UK ATPL, will I not be able to work in Sweden or any other icao state? And vice versa, if I do it in Sweden, Will I not be able to apply for the UK airlines?

These are the things Im thinking about and I would appreciate some advice on this, final decision, before I start my journey. I know that there are quite some threads on PPRuNe about the class 1 and country of issue but they do not answer my question fully.

You have already made up your mind according to your previous posts and you are just regurgitating questions you have already asked - not only in this forum but others - in multiple posts.
