For high school graduates springtime means an exciting period before entering the adult world – reflecting upon one’s future, considering careers and choosing corresponding studies. This can be a very challenging task, especially when it comes to multifarious industries – such as Shipping.
The offer of sector-specific degrees is enormous. But simplified – depending on the importance of the nautical, technical or economic component of the study program, one can differentiate between the ones preparing for a career at sea, and the ones – on land. Still, of course, not to forget numerous combination courses.
Not only the variety of programmes is challenging – ironically, also the advantage global mobility aggravates the difficulty of choice, since there are numerous high schools accepting international students all over the world worthy of a recommendation.
In Germany alone there is a wide offer of (international) degree courses in the fields of Maritime and Nautical, Training, Logistics and Supply Chain Education.
For example Maritime and Nautical studies are strongly represented in the North, inter alia at the Wismar University of Applied Sciences,Technology, Business and Design, at HSBA - Hamburg School of Business Administration and at the University of Applied Sciences in Bremerhaven:https://www.hs-wismar.de/en/
