Are you considering alternative options to university?
University isn’t for everyone – and if you find yourself pondering other options, that’s totally a-ok, because there’s an increasing amount of evidence to suggest that just because you go to Higher Education doesn’t mean that you’ll necessarily get the career of your dreams.
With the average debt of university students on graduating being in the region of over £50,000 and no guarantee of a job at the end of their studies, many students are exploring different options.
So what career training does UKSA offer?
Our flagship 4 year course the Superyacht cadetships offers students the opportunity to undertake a Plymouth University Foundation Degree in Operational Yacht Science leading to a full BSc. if required. This degree course has joint qualifications with the merchant/commercial training route affording graduates the opportunity to cross over into other sea-going pathways.
Whatever your budget, timescale or goals, there’s something to suit most people.
Have you considered?
- Getting a job working on superyachts or or small charter yachts?
- Working at sea in high end hospitality as a stewardess or steward?
- Or working in holiday centres for people like Neilson, Mark Warner and Ocean Elements?
What are the benefits?
Benefits can include travelling the world, the challenge and camaraderie of working as a team, the chance to up-skill and turn a job into a career, an enviable lifestyle and, in many cases, the chance of a lucrative pay packet. Which means your student debts are paid off within months of graduating.
