  • Where are the majority of students in your class from?

    I watched a few youtube videos about South Tyneside and the majority of students seemed to be older students from India. Is this the case? As I thought you had to have UK qualifications to do the HND or FD course. It might be that they are already qualified and were doing short courses

    Not that it matters at all but I am just curious P.S. I am doing the deck HND at South Tyneside.

    I think the majority of the FD Engine at WMA is Scottish..

        The Indians at STC (Incas as they are known as) are part of an collabaration that the college have with an indian college and will not be in your class.

          Ahhh that explains a lot Jenn. Wouldn't bother me either way and ships are multi-national this days now anyway, which I think will be great to mix with people from other cultures!

          What is the male to female ratio like at STC? I'm guessing about 90% male as women in the merchant navy, from what i've read, still seem to be in the minority.

            its something like that, about 40 people left on my course and only 5 girls. I believe that there is a higher percentage of girls on the foundation degree (from my intake anyway). Not many girls at all doing the engine cadet-ship, I can only think of 2 at the top of my head..

            Girls are still in the minority especially at sea, I personally have only sailed with one female officer and no female cadets and have been on 4 ships so far.

              Well its good to know that there is at least some female contingent at STC! Would be a sad sad day if there was no beautiful women to talk to

                The indians/oversea's people all have separate classes from the rest of us, im assuming they learn the same as us though. Also they do not live in the halls of residence, I was told by one of the security officers block A was occupied by them for a month, had to get fumigated and barred off for a month for hygiene and insects! they live in local flats and other housing area's
                As for the classes you will be in, most the students are down south or Scottish, one Welsh lad in my class but he's pretty harmless
                Life at sea is a life for me

                  Similar at Warsash - lots of Nigerians and Indians but in separate classes. Some live on-site.

                      most people at stc seem to come from scotland or the north of england perhaps some midlanders - not many southerners which i see as a good thing as i am one - nice to get away from the place
