Outstanding facilities, expert tutors and an exceptional graduate to employment rate have secured the Fleetwood Nautical Campus an international reputation for excellence. This is underpinned by a 125-year history of providing high quality maritime training to industry and the superior calibre of our students: we have won the Maritime and Coastguard Agency Officer Trainee of the Year Award seven times in ten years.
Regarded as one of the UK’s top nautical institutions, the Fleetwood Nautical Campus offers top-quality further and higher education, underpinned by Ofsted Grade 1 Outstanding status and commendations from the Quality Assurance Agency for Higher Education (QAA).
Cutting edge facilities include a five-bridge full mission ship simulator, an engine room simulator, an environmental survival tank, a firefighting training ground and a hall of residence. The latest addition is a new £1.2m Marine Engineering Centre.
Our strong industry partnerships provide students with excellent employment opportunities; they also allow us to continuously review and update our curriculum – blended learning, for example, was developed to meet a specific industry need.
We have a wide variety of courses at all levels - levels explained.
