  • Topping up to full degree from a HND

    Helllo, I'm currently thinking of applying for a deck cadetship but I'm not sure whether to go down the HND or FD route. I already have my heart set on already topping up to the full degree at the end of my normal cadetship. My main question is, what is the difference from topping up from the HND route compared to the FD route? Does it take longer? Is it harder to get the degree? My second question is does anyone know of any shipping companies still taking applications for the September intake?
    Cheers Ben

    Hi Ben

    If you want to top up to the BSc as soon as you finish your Cadetship then you need to do the FD route. Last I heard there was a sea time requirement before HNDs could top up (that's how it was at WMA anyway). Theres a separate thread for which companies are still taking applications called "Who's still recruiting?" Should be pretty easy to find as it's been made into a sticky by our noble admins!

      That seems to depend upon the university, it also depends if you want to top it up to the nautical science degree or use it as credit towards a different degree, most uni's wouldn't know what seatime was anyway.

      But the HND itself without additional seatime is acceptable to top up to the full degree, no need for the FD.
