Several universities and educational institutions in the UK have launched a Foundation Degree Program. In the marine sector foundation degree programs are offered in Marine Engineering or Marine Operations. Foundation degree programs are flexible employment-related degrees where students spend time at university and at their place of work. Top engineering companies in the UK have announced that they will participate in offering those foundation degree programs to suitable candidates.
Universities, colleges and other providers of foundation degree programs can add a foundation course or other degree program to the MaritimeCapabilities Course Directory.
