The curriculum is a perfect choice for those who want to combine studying towards a Bachelor degree with intensive language learning. A unique programme that offers you following your international sea-going career immediately after graduation.

The quality of our teaching, equipment as well as our curricula are accredited not only by Polish Ministry of Education but also by international bodies supervising marine education. These are rock-solid guarantees you will be in the hands of professionals. On graduation and having completed 12 months of sea-time you will receive the Officer of the Watch rank (OOW) which is one of the very first steps in your seafaring career. To get above this rank with undergraduate diplomas from other universities you would have to complete their graduate programmes.

This way you can become a 1st officer or even a captain much, much sooner!
