Gyalsung Training in 2025

The Gyalsung Training 2025 program will be conducted for 3 months in two cohorts starting from 1st April, for the first cohort and 1st August for the second cohort. The Gyalsung Training Program is designed to impart discipline, knowledge, and leadership skills and instill values to imbue in every cadet the distinctive watermarks of integrity, discipline, excellence, accountability, and loyalty.


All Gyalsars – NS Cadets – will undergo Basic Military Training (BMT) to enhance their strength and fitness levels and participate in drills and other associated activities such as obstacle courses, weapon handling, etc. While the BMT will be conducted by the Royal Bhutan Army and courses on National Education will be conducted by specialists.


Although not a part of the official curriculum, Gyalsars will pick up skills like teamwork, leadership, and independence as well as essential life skills as they go about their day-to-day activities at the Gyalsung campus.
