Our careers in maritime open days give you an insight into what a career in the maritime industry has to offer, and the training programmes to qualify as a ship's navigation (deck), engineer or electro-technical officer in the Merchant Navy and on superyachts.

Many of the major British shipping companies and recruitment and training companies who recruit cadets will be available to give information about the career opportunities they offer. Our teaching staff are also on hand to talk about the academic side of training, and current cadets will be able to tell you what training to be a ship's officer is like.

You'll also be able to take a tour of our campus and residences, watch a variety of general presentations and speak to our teams about accommodation options, applying and enrolling, student support, funding and much more!
