The King's Sword

At the Royal Military Academy, several awards may be assigned to worthy students. The most prestigious among these is no doubt 'The King's Sword'.

The award winner may belong to the Polytechnic Faculty as well as to the Faculty of Social and Military Sciences. He or she is selected on the basis of his or her merits during the bachelor period.

The King's Sword is presented to the winner during the annual parade of the opening of the academic year and the formal welcoming of the incoming promotions.
