You don't need yachting qualifications - the Cadetship will provide a structured progression through the RYA Yachting scheme to MCA Deck Officer training. It is also possible to complete a FdSc (Foundation Degree) in Operational Yacht Science too. There are funding opportunities for the right candidates. UKSA is based in Cowes on the Isle of Wight - the heart of the yachting world. All your food and accommodation is included during your training phases.
Applicants should be between 18 and 25. They should have good communication skills, oral and written, and a good understanding of mathematics. Cadets should ideally have GCSEs (or equivalent) in English, Maths and Science, passed with grades A-C. If applying for the Foundation Degree applicants should have 120 UCAS points at A2 level. If you are over the age of 21, and you do not have the required UCAS points, you could be assessed on any work place learning / training you have done. You must show an interest in a long term career within the superyacht industry.
UKSA hold open days for potential students to come and see our facilities, fleet and fabulous location. Speak to the maritime industry experts, learn about different routes into international yachting and watersports and have all your questions answered.
