The Commissioning Course for Regular Army officers is 48 weeks long, including recess periods. It runs three times a year, starting in January, May and September. The Army Reserve course is shorter, as is the training course Sandhurst offers military personnel with professional qualifications in areas such as law and medicine.
Training at Sandhurst covers military, practical and academic subjects, and while it is mentally and physically demanding, there’s also plenty of time set aside for sport and adventurous training.
It’s a proud day for officer cadets going into the Regular Army when they finally march up the steps of Old College to be commissioned as officers at the end of the prestigious Sovereign’s Parade.
