The class of 2023 began their academic studies on Monday at UNSW Canberra, and will continue their ongoing military training. 

“Over the past five weeks, the trainee officers have been introduced to life in the Australian Defence Force, which has included activities such as leadership and ethics education, weapons handling, physical training and drill,” GEN Campbell said.

“This unique combination of university education and military training prepares ADFA trainee officers intellectually, ethically and physically for their future roles as leaders in the Australian Defence Force. 

“ADFA is just the first step in a fantastic career in the Australian Defence Force for this year’s incoming class of trainee officers, and I will be following the progress of the trainee officers with interest.”
