Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) Courses and Requirements for Admission

Complete list of courses offered by the Nigerian Defence Academy (NDA) with the general requirements, compulsory credits and relevant credits for admission.NDA Courses

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.

Upon completing training, graduates will earn a university first degree (BSc, BEng, BA) and a commission into the Armed Forces of Nigeria.

Before we look at the list of courses offered by NDA and their full requirements, let me take some space to answer one or two questions.

Does NDA Accept Second Choice Candidates for Admission?

No, NDA does not accept second choice candidates for admission. If you want to be admitted into the academy, you must make it your first choice institution in your UTME. Only first choice candidates are given consideration.

Does NDA Pay School Fees?

The question about NDA school fees has been a bit controversial, especially among people who are not well informed. Many assume that the government takes full responsibility for the fees while the students study on scholarship. Others think that the government subsidizes the fees and there are no standard fee paid by students. But all these are speculations as there are standard tuition fees paid by students of the academy yearly.

Is Mobile Phone Allowed in NDA Campus/Hostel?

No, mobile phones and other such communication and information dissemination gadgets are strictly prohibited in NDA campus.

Does Everyone who Graduates from the NDA Continue as an Officer?

You hardly get anything 100% in life. But largely speaking, most cadets who graduate from the NDA end up as officers in the Armed Forces. After successfully passing through NDA, the cadets go to respective service academy for further training. Such service academies include the Indian military academy, the naval academy or the air force academy.

Can I study Medicine in NDA?

No, you cannot study medicine and many other courses closely related to medicine in NDA. If you keep reading this post, you will see a full list of all the courses offered at NDA and their entry requirements.

Do NDA Cadets Get Laptops?

The management gives a laptop to every cadet at the NDA. But these laptops are not functional in the real sense. The NDA makes available a LAN connection in each and every room, but the sad twist is that most of the websites you want to visit have been disabled by the academy.

Is it Compulsory to Cut your Hair in the NDA?

Long and stylish hair are not allowed in the NDA. All the lady cadets are required to trim their hair as their male counterparts. But if you want to keep long hair, then you will need to keep it in a tight bun, every day. i.e. you must wear the hair in such a way that it does not protrude past the bottom of the collar, and is not below the eyebrows.

Now let’s get into the main reason for this post. Please read on.
