Programme Structure

The principal aim of the Shipping course and its underlying philosophy is to provide an education experience that gives students a sound academic base in the core disciplines of shipping. One of the key innovative aims of this degree is to provide an integrated shipping curriculum, which enables students to acquire knowledge in a coherently structured way. The curriculum has been designed to allow students to link the multi-disciplinary subjects of shipping (operations, management, legal and financial aspects). By doing this, it is specifically intended to engage the students fully in their studies, increase their motivation and raise their aspirations to be successful throughout their course and in their career in the future. The curriculum provides students with an understanding of shipping business and the techniques, concepts and principles that make shipping businesses successful and efficient. Students will have the opportunity to study major disciplines in shipping, acquire some business experience and explore the factors that influence shipping business from a domestic and international perspective.
