The Corps of Staff Cadets

The Corps of Staff Cadets of the Royal Military College march past Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II at the Presentation of Colours Parade.

The Corps of Staff Cadets (CSC) prepares cadets and other selected candidates for a career in the Army by promoting leadership and integrity, by inspiring high ideals in the pursuit of excellence, and by inculcating a sense of duty, loyalty and service to the nation

The Royal Military College (RMC) curriculum currently extends over eighteen months and is derived of three classes.

This is a shorter course than the original four-year degree course offered to cadets at the college’s inception.

Degrees are no longer offered at RMC which trains only Army and Ground Defence Guards (Air Force) in military tactics and leadership.

RMC’s tri-service neighbour, the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA), offers degree courses to Army and Royal Australian Air Force Officer Cadets and Midshipmen from the Royal Australian Navy.

The Corps motto is ‘Doctrina Vim Promovet’, which is Latin for ‘Learning Promotes Strength’
