Home of Army Officer Training
Its imposing Grand Entrance instantly recognisable around the world, the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst is a national icon. It is world famous not just as a military academy but as the training ground for future statesmen and rulers. Winston Churchill trained here as did our future King, Prince William along with three generations of the The Royal Hashemite Court of Jordan.
Officer training has continued unbroken at Sandhurst for over 200 years.
Today, all those commissioned into the British Army are trained and educated at Sandhurst. These include those destined for the regular and reserve forces, those with specialist qualifications such as doctors, dentists, lawyers and chaplains and those commissioned from the ranks.
As the sign proclaims, when you arrive at the gate, the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst is the home of the British Army Officer
The Academy is enriched by the presence of International cadets with around 90 from some 50 countries training at any one time. In conclusion the training of today's young men and women for the rigours of junior leadership in contemporary conflict is professional and modern, but takes pride in its history and draws inspiration from its past.
There are three intakes each year for potential regular officers, in January May and September. The commissioning course lasts for 44 weeks.
