Is it time to take your maritime career to the next level? This two year distance learning programme is ideally suited to maritime professionals who are hoping to move into shore-based management positions.

Curriculum

International Maritime Context

This module is particularly designed to engage students in developing their skills of critical evaluation and evidenced argument (complementing work in the parallel study skills module) by starting from the student’s own experience and encouraging consideration and questioning of that experience from different perspectives.

Postgraduate and Self-managed Study

This module is specifically designed for working professionals who, while perhaps very senior and experienced in their own fields, have little familiarity with the demands and expectations of Higher Education (at postgraduate level in particular) and may be returning to education after a long gap.

Business Research Skills

The module is intended to deliver a fuller understanding of the skills and attributes of postgraduate study.

Professional Skills and Practice Portfolio

This module provides the opportunity to create an evidence-based portfolio that illustrates how a student’s existing professional skills and their prior experiential learning shape practice and allow them to operate effectively in their present role.

Project

The Project is the culmination of studies for the MSc and enables students to draw together their learning from other elements of the course, including their specialised option strand, and to apply this to in-depth research and investigation of a self-generated topic within their workplace.

Careers

Recent graduates have pursued careers in a raft of different roles, including:

  • Marine superintendent
  • Designated person ashore
  • Fleet manager
  • Port operations manager
  • Crewing manager
  • Ship manager
  • Maritime administration manager
