What our students, graduates and staff say

I am currently sailing as a Second Officer with the Scottish Governments's Fishery Protection Vessels. In my role I correct charts and publications, maintain the radio equipment and take part in fishery duties as required. I assist senior officers in any way that they require.

I wanted to study close to home in Shetland and I needed this course in order to gain my Merchant Navy engineering qualification. Support from lecturers was good and they are very experienced in the field in which they are teaching.
