The study provides information on the specialised military educational institution of the Slovak Armed Forces, the Military College Boarding School (MCBS), established in September 1942.The study points out the reasons for establishing MCBS and its special status in the military education system. MCBS was established as an institution providing future officers with higher education in the field of arms and mainly services. The college students who committed to serve in the Slovak Armed Forces as professional officers after graduation were accepted as the learners of MCBS. The learners of MCBS were students of the fields that were lacking in the Slovak Armed Forces, the students of medicine, pharmacy, veterinary medicine, pharmaceutics, technical fields, law and other. Majority of the MCBS learners studied at the Slovak University in Bratislava and Slovak colleges, and a part of them at the colleges in the Nazi Germany. Difficulty of the MCBS studies was increased by the fact that in addition to the college curriculum, they also had to undergo military training at the level of graduates of the reserve officers’ training, to be able to become fully-fledged officers. The first part of the study is focused on the establishment process in 1942, as well as the course of studies of the MCBS learners in the academic year of 1942/1943.
