Bachelor of Maritime Management | Sea Captain | full-time studies


Maritime industry offers one of the most exciting and diverse career paths for anyone who aspires to become a member of a seafaring crew through completing the required certificates of proficiency. Maritime academies in Scandinavia have a long reputation for delivering an outstanding curriculum, which prepares students for finding their own niche in the field. Thus, seafarers with a Scandinavian degree in Maritime Studies are in high demand, especially for management level /Deck Officer/ positions. Depending on their work experience they often work as officers, chief officers or Masters on board the ships. 

AHOT procedure – identification and recognition of competence

The process of the identification and recognition of competences (AHOT) is a procedure, through which the student can get earlier studies or competences or for example work experience included in the degree. Students don’t have to study again skills or other things they have studied/acquired earlier or during the present studies.

Students can apply for identification and recognition of competence throughout their studies and the academic year. There is no limit for the number of credits which can be identified and recognised. However, the thesis remains outside this process. AHOT procedure is always initiated by the student.

  • Shipping Technology and Shipping Economics
