This year, 60 students from 12 countries are joining the BALTDEFCOL family as participants of JCGSC. Their 11-month educational journey will be full of academic events, study trips and staff rides, exercises and social activities. Throughout the course, the students will work together with BALTDEFCOL Faculty and Subject Matter Experts from numerous NATO, EU and partner countries to master their leadership, critical thinking and problem-solving skills.

JCGSC is BALTDEFCOL’s oldest and most important course providing professional military education on operational level to prepare senior officers and selected civil servants for joint, interagency and multinational environments to meet the complex security challenges from Baltic and Euro-Atlantic perspectives.
