Portsmouth University courses enhance maritime careers

Portsmouth University of Portsmouth is offering degree apprenticeships

University of Portsmouth is offering degree apprenticeships which allow students to work as an employee while also studying part-time for a full Bachelor's or Master's degree.

A wide range of flexible work-based and distance learning courses are available, including maritime engineering. Courses combine the academic study from a traditional university degree with practical on-the-job experience and employment skills.

Oyadiran Akinyemi Tunmibi, BSc (Hons) Maritime Studies, stated: “One of the major roles of a master on-board is to provide solutions to all kinds of challenges at sea. All of my projects cut across providing solutions to critical challenges in the maritime industry. Not only have I been able to provide solutions to lingering navigational challenges in my company, this journey management has also offered me several opportunities at sea and in ports to act as a master.”

Portsmouth University stressed that degree apprenticeships are a cost-effective way for organisations to attract and retain talented employees, develop their workforce, fill skills gaps and improve their organisation's performance.

On a degree apprenticeship, apprentices go to university one day a week on day release to learn skills they can apply straight away in an organisation. They also have access to the university's virtual learning environment, so they can study independently.
