The Royal Danish Defence College knowledge and efforts support that the employees of Danish Defence and the reserve forces can flexibly develop their competencies throughout their careers - and stand strong in achieving the tasks of the Danish Defence.


The military educations and courses of the future must be up-to-date and just-in-time:

  • Lifelong learning that supports the units' and the individual's need for new knowledge and competencies.
  • Shorter, individualized learning courses adapted to both basic and current educational needs.
  • Greater flexibility through modularization and the use of flexible forms of learning.
  • Study and learning environment that supports military education and professional ethics.


The Defense Academy will be recognized for
