Corps of Staff Cadets

The Corps of Staff Cadets promotes leadership and integrity, inspiring high ideals in the pursuit of excellence, and instilling a sense of duty, loyalty and service to the nation.

The curriculum of the Royal Military College of Australia, Duntroon, currently extends over eighteen months. Staff cadets start in third class and move up a class every 6 months.

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 Duntroon, which trains only Army and Air Force ground defence officers in military tactics and leadership.

Duntroon’s tri-service neighbour, the Australian Defence Force Academy (ADFA), offers degree courses to Navy, Army and Air Force officers.
