    Sorry matey-I don't think you'll get the answers you need here. This is very much a UK site...if you want to study here I would suggest cotacting the MCA.

      I've moved your question into the "Questions" forum so you may get a wider response.

      If it really is the UK you want to study in, then I would suggest contacting the MCA, the Maritime Coastguard Agency of the UK. Their Website is

      Alternatively you could try contacting some of the UK sponsorship companies directly and seeing what they can offer you with your american qualifications.

      It's not impossible, I know a couple of cadets from Bermuda and one from America so it can be done, just persist.

      Feel free to ask any more questions you want, welcome to the site

        Unfortunately the rules are there for a reason. To throw another spanner in the works, to be eligible for sponsorship in the UK, you need to be resident in the UK for at least one year. However, this doesn't apply to cadets sponsored by, say, Bermudan companies who are sent to the UK for training.

        I'm sure plenty of good officers have gone through the US system - for the sake of an easy life I'd say you're best going that way.
