ADFA Honours Students

Honours years at ADFA are highly desirable, sought after by the most academically gifted students and promoted to all students by ADFA, RMC and DOCM-A staff. It is to be considered the first option for eligible high performing Army ADFA students, ahead of all other career options including unit postings.

ADFA honours will be awarded annually based on recommendations of military and academic staff. The UNSW University Handbook outlines the availability of honours degree programs.

Each year, in September, high performing ADFA third year cadets nominate themselves to undertake an honours year following graduation from RMC. The benefit for Army is providing honours recipients with professional and academic development opportunities not normally available in Army.

The Honours program is only for ADFA UNSW graduates and is normally a 12 month program in line with the academic year.
