About Marine Operations at Liverpool John Moores University

Moving consumer goods in containers, vehicles on car decks, or passengers on sundecks relies on the expertise and professionalism of ships' officers to bring them safely to port, and the professionalism of shore staff to manage the fleet.

This Foundation Degree in Marine Operations can lead to qualification for a position as deck officer and eventually captain of a commercial ship. On top of your degree you will need to do further short courses, exams and time at sea to achieve Officer of the Watch and ultimately, Chief Mate and Master Mariner qualifications. The work-based modules of this course are completed at sea working for a commercial shipping company. Should you not chose to go away to sea you will not be able to complete OOW and the work-based modules will be completed in local shipping companies or using simulator facilities within the University.

Successfully completing the Foundation Degree is the fastest way to obtain the Officer of the Watch (OOW) certificate but you can 'top up' your FdSc to a full BSc (Hons) by continuing your studies for a further nine months on our BSc (Hons) Nautical Science degree.

We have a proud tradition of teaching maritime and nautical studies at LJMU, having originally provided courses as Liverpool Nautical College. However this course is firmly focused on the present and future needs of the industry with its state-of-the-art facilities, including the UK's only 360-degree ship's bridge simulator system and teaching from staff with extensive industrial experience.

Notes about fees for this course

The fees quoted are those for the 2018/19 year as information for 2019/20 is not yet available. The Department for Education (DfE) have recently announced that they will be freezing tuition fees for the 2019/20 academic year. However, this is still subject to the normal parliamentary approval. Once 2019/20 fees are confirmed we will update our web pages accordingly.
