OpportUNIty

OpportUNIty Student Ambassador

OpportUNIty: Student Jobs on Campus ensures that our students are given a first opportunity to fill many part-time temporary positions within the University. This allows you to work while you study with us, fitting the job around your course commitments. By taking part in the scheme, you will gain valuable experiences and employability skills, enhancing your prospects in the job market.

It will also allow you to become more involved in University life by delivering, leading and supporting many aspects of the learning experience, from administration to research and mentoring roles.

Graduate jobs

People who complete an HND with us can go straight into a career, but many choose to continue learning and often complete a full degree. For example, Jasdeep Dhillon went on to do a degree in business and management with us when she finished her HND. From there she went straight into a graduate scheme position as a Project Management Officer at Capgemini.

The university provides a lot of resources and connects you with key networks to get into the field you require. My advice is to be proactive and network! And you will succeed.

Firewalking

Who is it for?

The course is designed for people who wish to make a career in the marine and offshore industries and who have either developed some experience in industry, maritime or otherwise, or have a sound academic basis or skills upon which to build.

During the course, in addition to gaining an understanding of the underlying principles upon which the industry is based, students will also gain confidence in the interpersonal and international cultural skills which are essential to senior roles in the maritime industries.

Objectives

The Maritime Operations and Management course is designed for existing professionals serving in the industry as well as those looking for a career within the maritime, offshore and sea transport industries. For those already within the industry applicants are likely to have a responsible sea-going or middle-management position. Alternatively, new entrants to the industry are likely to have attained a first degree in a related technical or management subject.

This modular course is focused towards giving students the necessary knowledge and skills to help them achieve high levels in their careers in the maritime and offshore industries. Indeed, many former students on this course have now reached board level appointments in their various companies.

Accreditation

Institute of Chartered Shipbrokers

The course is accredited by the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology. This means that graduates from the programme, with appropriate industrial experience, can apply for Professional Recognition as Chartered Marine Technologist (CMarTech).

Additionally, successful completion of the course gives the maximum number of exemptions from the examinations of the Chartered Institute of Shipbrokers.

The course is also recognised by the Royal Institute of Naval Architects (RINA) as part of the RINA Continuing Professional Development Log.

Course content and assessment

Teaching and learning

The course is taught by 12 lecturers who come from academia and industry. These are supported by around six guest lecturers from various parts of the marine industry.

During the year students make visits to IMO and port facilities as well as other organisations.

Assessment

Each subject has coursework associated with it and this normally comprises two essays which probe the student’s abilities for critical analysis. Examinations are held twice per year with three subjects examined in January and the remainder in May. To pass, the student must gain 50% in each of the coursework and examination elements.

The project is a major piece of work which results in a dissertation on a chosen subject. This is examined by the dissertation content and viva-voce examination.

Modules

The Maritime Operations and Management course comprises eight taught modules: six compulsory and two elective to suit the student’s needs and future career aspirations. All students will also have to complete the Professional Studies core module. Outside of the block taught module students are expected to read around the subjects developed in the lectures, undertake coursework and prepare for examinations in the compulsory subjects.

If we have insufficient number of students interested in an elective module, this may not be offered. In rare cases, one or two elective modules may not run due to low interest or unanticipated changes in timetabling, including scheduling clashes, room and staff availability. If an elective module will not run, we will advise you at the beginning of every academic term or as soon as possible, and help you choose an alternative module.”

Completion of modules and examinations will lead to the award of a Postgraduate Diploma. Alternatively, if in addition, a project followed by a dissertation is undertaken by a student, this will lead to the award of a Master’s degree.

You are normally required to complete all the taught modules successfully before progressing to the dissertation.

Full-time students can expect to study for around 37 hours per week.

After you graduate

Career prospects

The course is designed to lead graduates into a variety of career paths, depending upon their interests, within the marine industry. When they reach the higher echelons of organisations, then the all-embracing nature of the studies in this course help them to take wide management perspectives of problems facing their companies or organisations.

It is anticipated that students upon graduating will find employment within the maritime industries, with some even offered jobs prior to graduation. These employment opportunities are either in the middle or higher management areas. For those with little prior experience in the industry, passing out from the course will place them on paths leading towards employment at higher levels within the industry.
