What our students say about us

"The course was of great benefit and everyone certainly took a lot away in terms of refresher training and also newly gained information. Many thanks for your time and excellent tutoring - very much appreciated"
Recent attendees on the newly-created radar/electronic navigation refresher course, for pilots and other harbour masters (March 2017)

"The ship handling course is the best training I have had in my 29 years of going to sea. The models, instructors, and facility are outstanding."

"My studies at Warsash help me every day at work. The foundations I learnt help to diagnose and solve engineering problems, as well as having a good understanding of the systems found on board."
Graham Harvey, third engineer officer (Aug 2014)

"The opportunities for British seafarers, both at sea and ashore, are excellent. Warsash Maritime Academy has given me an excellent foundation upon which I can build a career that is rewarding, fulfilling and secure."
Christopher Doyle, third navigation officer (Aug 2014)

"I thought the course was absolutely brilliant. I have been coming to Warsash for the past nine years and the level of teaching is always very good. The standard of teaching, enthusiasm and knowledge demonstrated by the lecturers was as good as I have experienced anywhere in the world. I learned a huge amount about a subject that I am generally pretty unfamiliar with and this will be of massive benefit to me and hopefully my crew in the future!  I'll be sure to highly recommend you whenever any colleagues have medical courses to complete in the future."

“I found the online method invaluable and the main reason I decided to study for a masters was for a bit of recognition of what I had done to date. It is a formal recognition; it was a feeling of achievement.”

"When I asked the help was there. The course was excellent; the units were well-developed, very varied, extremely interesting and it was valid to the job that I was doing. MSc Shipping Operations is good for career advancement. Ask questions, use the tutors, use the resources and enjoy yourself!”

"Warsash has always provided me with everything I needed to pass any exam. They supply a great collection of notes, fantastic facilities and incredible support from many of the lectures there, making any spend worth the expense. Any question asked, an answer is always given, as the combined experience of all the lectures at the college is countless. What really makes it worth it for me, is that Warsash care about students and they always try to help, no matter what the problem is, even when you go back home you always know you can count on them for any needed support."
Daniel Springer, Chief Engineer (yachts)
