Merchant Navy Cadet, Access to Merchant Navy
I completed the Access to Merchant Navy course at the Lews Castle College UHI. It was the best move I ever made. It made possible the chance for me to have a career as a cadet on board a vessel operating all around the Atlantic. I have called in at numerous ports including Corpus Christi USA, Houston USA, Sorel-Tracy Canada, Falmouth UK, Ensted Denmark, Bahamas and Port Arthur USA.
I had a great time at Lews Castle UHI and the course helped me achieve the entry qualifications required for cadetship training. It also gave me a good grounding in a whole range of Maritime subjects. The staff also helped me with my CV and applying to companies for a cadetship. Without this support, it would have been difficult for me achieve my goals.
