      Oh though you may have read Clyde Marine aren't actually a shipping company, they recruit for a number of companies and you can end up with any of there companies

        I'm with Clyde and with a decent company through them (so I hear as I haven't actaully been on a ship yet!) You have to sort of view them as an agency, they have done everything to a good standard with me so far, the only issue sometimes is a lack of communication between the company, you and Clyde. However saying that I have heard similar things from people with different companies. All in all though I'd say apply and see what comes of it

          Cheers RNR hope you don't mind me asking but what qualifications did you have to get in? I'm hoping to have six highers all at A or B, would this be good enough these days?

            I'm taking it that highers are the same as A-Levels but I got 3 A-Levels and they all were B or lower lol so I'd think you'd be pretty sorted qualification wise. Theres a lot of talk about the difference between the FD and the HND but its minimal really as you come out with the same ticket at the end of it. In what area are you looking to work in? (I.e offshore, deep-sea, ferrys etc)

              I got into the HNC Engine with good GCSEs and **** AS-Levels (ADDU), you're fine. I've only been with CMT for 7 days, but have already been put with a good sponsor

                  I'm deep sea personally, thought may as well get out and see the world rather than doing a Britain to France crossing or similar.

                    deep sea ~ see lots of ocean and some rather industrial ports in different places no sure fire shore leave
                    ferry ~ nothing to say it will be uk baised and theres often a chance for a dash ashore in a regular port

                    as for companies clyde are fine but apply to all the management style ones if you dont have a fixed company in mind and research what each gives you, pay company options etc
                    you can take it with a pinch of salt, but i prefer it with a nip of whisky

                      RNR, when did you apply for it? Around Christmas time or later than that?

                        If I were you I would apply to everyone, that's what I did. In the end I went with SSTG but did have an interview with Clyde and a few other companies.

                        With those grades you are academically sound for gaining entry into the FD program, or if at GCNS the PD program.

                        Edit.

                        I would also start applying now, I started just there at the beginning of September and when I applied in January it was a mad rush to get in, I had to really push to get an interview with certain companies because of my late application.

                        With regards to other companies, the Careers at Sea website lists all the companies that offer cadet program, the bigger ones will travel the country holding interview days, but most will pay your expenses to their office for an interview.

                          Personally i'd be starting to think about filling out applications now. I wouldn't leave it until after christmas as last year a lot of companies filled their spaces quickly.

                              I keep trying to apply for CMT but the page says that applications are closed and will open soon. Anyone any idea when they will open?
