Cadetship training at the City of Glasgow College is a highly respected mode of study. Through a unique experience of studying at the college and practical hands-on training working on board a ship at sea, you will be developing essential skill sets for your future career. 

As a cadet, we understand that your split time between the college and at sea, is a unique experience and you may require some extra support. We want to highlight different support options for you to ensure you know that you are not alone. 

Something missing? Let us know! 

If you know of a great resource that you want to share with other students, then please get in touch – we would love to hear from you.
