Further Study Options in pursuing a Career at Sea.

Higher Professional Certification leading to:

Higher Academic Studies:

Each of the cadet training programmes will certificate their academic studies in the form of a recognised qualification. This will either be an HNC (Higher National Certificate), HND (Higher National Diploma), FdSc (Foundation Degree - England) or PD (Professional Diploma - Scotland).

There are also opportunities for candidates who have the academic ability and desire to study for a higher level of academic award above those they achieved whilst completing their cadet training programme.

The opportunity also exists to complete further studies leading to the award of a full Honours degree. This will either require a specific funding agreement from your sponsor company, or be undertaken under a self-funding arrangement where this is not available. This funding will follow the rules and structure applicable to most university students.
