The City of Glasgow College provides an HND Nautical Science blended learning option for:
- Deck Officers progressing towards Chief Mate (Unlimited) certification and
- Holders of the HNC Nautical Science who wish to complete the HND
Blended learning is a combination of techniques to deliver the same syllabus that you would receive via conventional classroom-based methods. You can access study material via the college virtual learning environment that consists of workbooks, videos, e-learning modules and quizzes as well as access to a range of library e-books.
As each unit of the HND is completed you are required to sit mock assessments to ensure that learning objectives have been completed. Additional support is provided by designated lecturers via email, Skype and telephone. Unit assessments and the HND graded unit exams are undertaken within a college approved facility. A preparatory course for the HND graded unit exam is provided within the college.
The benefits of following this route include:
- Fit your learning around your work and home life
- Progress at your own pace
- Continue to work as you study
- Save on college accommodation costs
