Welcome to the Defence Academy of the United Kingdom

We teach 'how', not 'what' to think.

The Defence Academy delivers world class professional defence and security education to students from the Ministry of Defence, wider government, UK industry and overseas.

With a range of short and long courses, our portfolio consists of face-to-face, digital and blended learning. We train and educate in:

  • leadership
  • strategy
  • information warfare
  • cyber
  • multi-domain integration
  • capability and acquisition
  • business skills
  • languages and international engagement

The education we offer goes beyond the boundaries of defence and is transferable to other organisations, including other government departments, industry, charities and academia.
