About the Royal Military Academy
The Royal Military Academy, the country's only bilingual and federal university, educates women and men who are committed to today's society and ready to serve. This education combines human, exact and applied sciences, new technologies and military traditions. Our education cannot be detached from the world around us, which is why it is supported by strong academic research, collaboration with other universities, research centres or industries, and by meeting young people coming from other universities or military schools. In this context, participation in the ERASMUS programme enables exchanges that are essential to the high quality of this education.
The RMA is a place for the transfer of knowledge, but also of values. The selected candidates are at the centre of our attention. Constant follow-up with coaching increases their chances of successfully completing the training, of developing a strong sense of leadership and people skills, and of being fully prepared to embark on an officer's career in the service of our society.
