Officers & Management

Entry and education

You can join the ADF following completion of Year 12, either by going straight into Officer training, or by being paid to study for an appropriate degree at the Australian Defence Force Academy. If you are already at uni and considering a healthcare, engineering or business-related role, you can apply for Defence University Sponsorship, which pays a salary plus your remaining course fees. Alternatively, if you are fully degree-qualified you can apply your knowledge to a rewarding Officer career in the Navy, Army or Air Force and be trained further on the job.
