COVID-19: Student FAQs

Open Day

Fleetwood Nautical Campus are hosting an Open Day aimed at giving potential students an insight into college life and information on various careers in the Maritime Industry. Many of the major shipping companies will have representatives available to answer any questions and give information about the career opportunities they have to offer.

  • Speak to representatives from all the major shipping companies about the various employment options – they’ll also be offering sponsorship to interested students

"We were very impressed not just with the information on offer but also with the staff that we came into contact with on the day - all of whom were friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable - from the gentleman on the desk at registration to yourself and then the staff and cadets in engineering and the pool display."

"We also spoke to a few cadets, they were a credit to the College and were hugely helpful. Again, thank you so much for your help and advice, Leah will most definitely be attending further open days and, thanks to you has a good idea of the next steps necessary".
