hi guys..

I have just graduated from the Arab Academy for Science & Technology and Maritime Transport in Egypt, i have studied for 2 years basic nautical studies.

Now i am about to join maersk line or UASC as a deck cadet for 12 months , i want to study for 2nd mate in UK ,so what is the requirements to study there and how much sea service are required, here in Egypt they ask cadets for only 12 months sea service to join 2nd mate course, what about UK?..
