The Nigerian Defense Academy (NDA) Course Requirement

The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) was founded on the 5th of February, 1964 for the purpose of training officers for the Armed Forces of Nigeria. The Nigerian Defence Academy provides each officer cadet with the knowledge, skills, and values that are needed to meet the requirement of a military officer in Nigeria.

Admission into the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) is very competitive every year. Each year, the NDA admits 175 intakes (155 males and 20 females) into the Regular Combatant Course. There are certain requirements for you to be eligible for entry.

Just like in every institution, the NDA also has its requirements for entry. This article is channelled towards revealing the admission requirements for entering the Nigerian Defence Academy in Kaduna.

For you to be admitted, you must have completed your Senior School Certificate Examination (WAEC or NECO) or a GCE O’ Level with at least five credits passes in not more than two sittings. In addition, you must have a minimum of a credit pass in Mathematics and English Language.

The Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) is not an institution where admitted candidates only undergo military training. Admitted students also undergo sound academic training as Officer Cadets for a duration of 5 years.

On successful completion of training, graduating students will earn a university first degree (BSc, BEng, BA) and a commission into the Armed Forces of Nigeria.
