  • Marine Society

    marsoc.jpgIt’s the world’s leading and most experienced charity involved in maritime lifelong learning. From its offices in central London, it provides a range of services to seafarers and shore-based maritime professionals to enhance learning and well-being, and to facilitate personal and professional development.


    No organisation has more experience of delivering high-quality, flexible learning at sea or of placing the well being of seafarers first.

    So what does the Marine Society offer MN Officer Trainees?

    Top-up your HND/FD to an honours degree

    The BSc/BA Professional Practice is a flexible undergraduate course designed for seafarers who are looking to top up their HND or FD to an honours degree from Middlesex University.

    The course has been developed and is offered in partnership between the Marine Society and Middlesex University. It allows you to integrate your existing qualification and experience with academic learning whilst you work at sea.

    Unlike many other distance learning courses, an internet connection is not required as all materials can be supplied on a CD, and contact with tutors can be by phone as well as email. It can be completed in eight months.

    The Marine Society handles all of the administration on your behalf, leaving you free to complete your studies. And because it’s entirely distance taught, it’s relatively inexpensive and you don’t need to interrupt your sea time to go back to college.

    In case further persuasion is necessary, the Marine Society subsidises the cost of the course making it even more attractive to MN Officers. Read more.

    Anything else?

    Sure. The Marine Society manages and co-ordinates a range of training programmes from mainstream providers for delivery at sea. It offers tutor-supported distance learning in a broad range of subjects and levels to suit all ages, abilities and aspirations. It enters seafarers for public examinations and conducts them at sea, including GCSEs and A Levels. It also offers underpinning support for Open University study at sea and arranges OU exams afloat anywhere in the world.

    There’s a new and useful e-learning course in nautical maths which many are finding helpful as a refresher. Designed and developed by maritime professionals, it covers what’s required to cope with Maths at nautical college today in a fun and intuitive way. Visit Maths@Sea.

    We could also talk about the range of scholarship programmes for individuals to support professional development, and mention that interest-free loans are available for study programmes.

    There’s a crew library service equipping hundreds of vessels globally. And there’s an acclaimed impartial advice and guidance service that handles 6,500 enquiries from seafarers every year. This free service is available to all seafarers, and welcomes enquiries on any matter of concern.

    And finally … there’s an online bookshop offering any title in any format. A competitive price is guaranteed, as is expert advice and friendly service.

    Marine Society director Brian Thomas told OfficerCadet.com:

    “The Marine Society’s contribution is to support personal and professional development that encourages and enables seafarers acquire new skills and realise their full potential.

    We urge all seafarers to make contact with us and keep in touch throughout their careers. The earlier the contact, the better!“
