Entry requirements for Military Science applicants

Entry requirements for applicants for a Bachelor degree in Military Science usually include a good physical training. Admission for some study programs includes a test for a physical training (for example, running). However, applicants for many theoretical study programs in Military Science (history, economy, etc) do not need to demonstrate a compulsory physical training. High grades in Social Sciences (History, Sociology) are usually required. Universities of many countries accept foreign students for educational programs in the field of military science. International applicants need to demonstrate fluency in English, since all study programs in Military Science which can be found on our website are taught in English. The language level can be proved with the results of a language test such as TOEFL or IELTS. Some countries also have specific requirements for international applicants.
