Escudo AGM

Academia General Militar.

Mission

The enactment of the Law 39/2007 on Nov. 19th regarding the military career and the implementation of the Bologna process in Europe have led to the reform of the Military Training and Education System of the Officer Cadets of the Armed Forces. Its main goal is to adjust military training and education to the new parameters of the general education system. On this way, it is possible to integrate the military training and education into the civilian academic scope.

Generally speaking, the main goal of the military training and education of the officer cadets is their preparation for their professional practice and capacity for the incorporation into their corresponding Ranks. It also involves the military training and education for the acquisition of the essential skills which are needed to develop the different commitments in each Corps.
All these tasks, which cover the preparation of the students in human, military, physical and technical fields, will permanently meet the requirements for the development of the science and technology.
