Middlesex University

Work Based Learning

The Marine Society has worked with Middlesex University for over 14 years. There are  two pathways especially made for seafarers and shore-based maritime professionals, both of which have been mapped to seafarers' professional qualifications and experiential learning. Middlesex University recognises and awards academic credit for these qualifications.

What's on offer?

  • Bachelors degree: top-up an HND/FD to an honours degree
  • Masters degree: trade on your professional qualifications and experience to get an academic masters degree
  • Doctorate: study for a Doctorate in Professional Studies
