Home of Army Officer Training

With 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 Royal Hashemite Court of Jordan.

Officer training has continued unbroken at Sandhurst for over 200 years. As the sign proclaims, when you arrive at the gate, the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst is the home of the British Army Officer.

RMAS Today

Today, all those commissioned into the British Army are trained and educated at Royal Military Academy Sandhurst. These include those who are destined for the regular and reserve forces, those with specialist qualifications such as doctors, dentists, lawyers and chaplains and those who are commissioned from the ranks.

International Cadets

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.

Officer Training

There are three intakes each year for potential regular officers, in January May and September. The commissioning course lasts for 44 weeks.

British Applications: The Army Officer Selection Board (AOSB) is the interview process through which you are selected to train at Sandhurst. AOSB takes place in Westbury near Warminster. You can find out more about AOSB on the British Army jobs website. Apply directly here.

International Applications: Students are selected by their defence organisations and their applications are made to the Ministry of Defence through the Defence Attache.
