This programme is for overseas students who do not have sufficient Visa time left to attend the Long HND programme.
The South Shields Marine School team in the Deck Officer Certification School are busy making preparations for the start of your programme in September/October 2020.
Covid-19 has challenged the delivery of professional programmes, but here at South Shields Marine School we have developed our professional standards for academic delivery with an effective approach to your programme of study which includes safe face-to-face teaching. This involves careful timetabling to dedicate each group (bubble) to a single classroom to prevent excessive movement and contact with others. Hand sanitiser and face coverings (masks) will be provided. Start times, coffee breaks, lunch and end times will be staggered as far as possible. Classroom windows will be open to increase fresh air flow.
Should there be a re-introduction of restrictions by the Government then we are also prepared to continue to deliver your programmes remotely.
The Curriculum Leaders remain active and will be meeting you during the first week to say hello, along with all of the lecturing team who will guide your learning and help with your assessments.
In the coming months before commencing your studies please contact the marine administration office if we can offer any further guidance before joining us:
