Pre-ACSC focuses on the skills you will need for the Advanced Command and Staff Course. It includes academic writing, critical thinking, presentation skills and leading and participating in seminars. You will be exposed to materials that compliment ACSC and be given the opportunity to familiarise yourself with English vocabulary around a wide range of topics such as politics and ideology, current affairs, social issues and military terminology.
This course will enable you to build important relationships with fellow colleagues and embed yourself into UK military life prior to your arrival on ACSC. You will also have the opportunity to go on external visits to places of military and cultural importance such as Winchester and Bath.
This is a 12-week course, starting in May each year. Talk
to your UK Defence Attaché or IDT for closing dates.
