Life After School
Defence Force Australia
Defence Force Australia offers multiple post-school pathways. You can have part or all of your degree course paid for, or you can work for the ADF in a gap year. Following a Defence Force Australia pathway means you earn a salary from day one.
The Defence Force also offers Defence University Sponsorships, allowing you to apply for a role in the Navy, Army or Air Force while still studying for a degree at any accredited university in Australia. The sponsorship will earn you a salary, help cover student loans and ensure you a position in uniform when you graduate.
Furthermore, a partnership with the University of New South Wales has created the Australian Defence Force Academy. The academy combines a university degree with cutting-edge military and leadership training. University fees are covered by the Federal Government, and you also earn a base salary of $40,910, plus Super.
