Program content:

The three year maritime education is an education aimed towards the future occupation of a seaman meeting the requirements in STCW A-II/1 and A-II/2, and it also qualifies for a bachelor degree in maritime studies. This education should provide insight in and knowledge of the maritime activity in local, national and global perspectives, and should safeguard the cooperation between maritime technology, environment and society.

Høgskolen Stord/Haugesund (HSH) is responsible for the education meeting the requirements from the Norwegian Maritime Authority. The education is subject to the Norwegian Maritime Authority's requirements for quality assurances. The bachelor degree should meet the requirements in STCW A-II/1 And A-II/2. 

In addition, the following courses are mandatory:

  • STCW Basic safety training (as specified in STCW A-VI/1-1, A-VI/1-2, A-VI/1-3 og A-VI/1-4)
  • STCW Advanced Safety Training (as specified in STCW A-VI/2-1, A-VI/3 og A-VI/4-1)
  • Medical Care (STCW A-VI/4-2)
  • Maritime Radio Communication (GMDSS, STCW IV)

Some of these courses are offered in cooperation with external resources. HSH reserves the right to charge a course fee for such courses according to decision. The students will receive course diplomas for the safety training, ARPA, ECDIS, AIA and Medical Care. Based on passed exams in relevant courses, Telenor issues a GOC certificate. These courses are offered to students who have a reasonable progression within the study program, and who have not done this or similar before starting their studies and thereby have valid course diplomas. There can also be qualification requirements.

Courses are only offered once to each student. If a student is registered for a course but does not complete the course without a valid reason, he/she will not be offered a new course on HSH's expense. Note that valid courses can be a prerequisite for other subjects. If a student have an expired course when making the registration for a subject, the student are responsible for making sure a new course is completed on his/her expense before registration is possible.

Students with admission to the Bachelor program of Nautical studies are also offered a course in Security-related training for seafarers with designated security duties (in accordance with STCW A-VI/6(4) and table A-VI/6-2). A certificate will be issued when course is completed. The course is not mandatory to obtain the Bachelor Degree of Nautical Studies.

Through completion of voluntary subjects, students may also qualify for the following Course Diplomas:

  • Tankerman, lowest grad Chemicals and oil, as well as highest grade oil (STCW section A-V/1-1, table: A-V/1-1-1 and A-V/1-1-2)
  • Cadet Pilot Exemption Course, 48 hrs. (Completed in accordance to The model course ¿Cadet Pilot Exemption Course¿)

These subjects or Course Diplomas are not mandatory to obtain the Bachelor Degree of Nautical Studies.

Learning outcome:

A candidate with completed qualifications should have the following total learning outcomes:  

Knowledge:

The candidate:

  • Has knowledge, analytical training and understanding of the issues related to the maritime field, and in areas such as navigation, cargo related topics and safety.
  • Knows how to describe different paradigms and issues related to leadership and safety.
        • Has knowledge of how to collect relevant information, analyze and find solutions for relevant problems through the use of based on fundamental courses such as mathematics, physics, chemistry and methodology.

Skills:

The candidate:

  • Is able to see the connections between the different fields, and thereby be able to use the knowledge and skills achieved from all the courses in one specific issue.
  •  
        • Is able to use their knowledge in fundamental courses in wide range of maritime issues.
  • Is able to complete their Cadetship onboard vessels.
  • Is able to carry out own analyses of safety issues and are able to use these as a basis for making decisions. 

General competence:

The candidate:

  • Fulfils the theoretical requirements in STCW A-II/1 and A-II/2 to complete their cadetship.
  • Can continue studying for a Masters degree either in Norway or abroad.
  • Has developed a will and ability towards analytical thinking.
  • Has formed a foundation for lifelong learning.

Teaching methods:

Research based teaching and with an analytical approach towards the subjects are the most dominant forms of teaching. The different forms of dissemination are varied and can be e.g. lectures, practical exercises on simulator, group work and problem based learning. It is expected that the students show up for class well prepared, as the lecturers place a significant amount of work in preparing for the classes.

Group work is the most dominant form of work except for individual work. The students should expect to work at least 30 hours per credit per semester. Information and communication technology are integrated in the teaching, with Classfronter and computer based support systems as important tools in the scientific and educational work.

Assessment methods:

The forms of assessment have two goals:

  1. To give the students feedback to which level they are at, and thereby facilitate improvement.
  2. To say something about the students' learning outcomes.

The grade scales consists of the grades A-F and passed/not passed. The grades A-E indicates that the student has passed the exam and the grade E indicates that all minimum requirements within STCW are met. The grade F indicates that the student has failed the exam. The grade C reflects a good and solid academic performance.

Student exchange:

The nautical studies enable you to become an exchange student at educational institutions within the EU or in other parts of the world. You can read more about the student exchange programme here: http://www.hsh.no/internasjonalisering.htm

Admission information:

The latest date of application is normally around March 1st for the students who wants to be accepted early/ wants special assessment/ has a foreign educational background/ has Rudolf Steinerskole/ has IB/ applies based on approved practical competence equivalency. 

The latest date of application is normally 15th of April for all ordinary applicants. 

You can check the updated dates for verification of the dates here: http://www.samordnaopptak.no

Admission requirements:

1. Basic university admission requirements

2. 2-årig teknisk fagskole

3. Completed pre-course for engineering for maritime studies - or;

4. An approved practical competence equivalency

Professional and occupational prospects:

When enough sea service time after completing the education, the students will eventually be able to apply for D1 certificate. Then you will hold the certificate for being a Captain on all different types of vessels; Vessels in international trade, cruise ships, fishing vessels, vessels engaged in coastal trade and offshore service vessels. With a background in different positions onboard, there are several possibilities for getting good jobs ashore, e.g. in the shipping companies or governmental agencies such as the Norwegian Maritime Directorate.

Further education:

The bachelor degree in maritime studies here at HSH will enable you to continue studying towards the degree of Master. This can be done at several colleges and universities throughout Norway, but also abroad. A complete Bachelor degree in Nautical Studies also meets the admission requirements to a Bachelor program in Engineering (Requirement code: HING).
