Marine Society and Sea Cadets


Glasgow Maritime Academy supports vision of Marine society. Marine Society is dedicated to professionally develop seafarers, helping them to learn new skills, gain accredited qualifications and realise their full potential. The charity offers financial assistance including scholarships to seafarers to support their professional development at all levels.

On behalf of Nautilus International, Marine Society administers the John William Slater Scholarship for Ratings (deck or engine room) aspiring to their first Officer of the Watch Certificate of Competency and assists Electro Technical Officers and yacht crew to gain STCW 2010 certification. If you would like to apply for these courses and you are not supported by a shipping company, or you are self or part funding your studies you may be able to apply for this scholarship worth up to £17,000.
