The remodeling of Course together with hard work put in by candidates who attended the course at the USI has been very satisfying leading to outstanding results. In 2019, USI students bagged 12 out 20 Competitive vacancies for DSSC (Army). Out of 247 Army officers nominated to attend DSSC Course, 173 were USI students. Out of 25 earmarked as reserve, 11 were USI students and out of 90 offrs nominated for DSTSC, 68 were USI students. Out of 88 offrs earmarked for ALMC/ISC, 48 offrs were USI students. See msg to CI for detailed analysis of results.


We endeavor to keep costs to students at the lowest possible level despite constantly escalating input costs. However to get full value, officers need to attempt all papers and have these corrected at the USI. If this is done for all papers there will be a constant improvement, which would surely help passing of exams.The course fees for all courses for 2023 stands revised (See Fee Structure). See Msg from CI for imdt registration
