Engineering Apprenticeships Aren’t the Only Alternative to University

High-level apprenticeships offer a viable alternative to university with many advantages over traditional academic endeavors, chief amongst which is that apprenticeships actually pay you while you study up to degree level, as opposed to university which leaves the average student in the UK with debts of on average £50,000.

While there are many companies that offer apprenticeships, especially in the building services and engineering sector, for prospective engineers there is a third option; merchant navy engineering cadetships.

Chiltern Maritime offer cadet courses that will qualify you as an Engineering Officer through a combination of learning in college and practical assignments aboard the Merchant Navy fleet- including cruise liners and cargo ships. Engineering cadets will learn hands-on how to monitor and maintain the extensive mechanics of a large ship whilst traveling the world, and of course, being paid for their hard work on board.

There are many reasons to choose an engineering cadetship over an apprenticeship or University:
