Fleetwood Nautical College Open Day

Fleetwood Nautical College Campus regularly hold an Open Day, which gives potential students an insight into college life and information on various careers in the Maritime Industry.

Many of the major shipping companies have representatives available at the event to answer questions and tell you about the career opportunities they have to offer. Current students are also there to discuss how they find life at the college, their career and life at sea.

The college arrange a tour of the campus, including the offshore pool facilities, the bridge and engine room simulators. They will also show you the college Halls of Residence.

But also, FLEETWOOD STUDENT ACCOMMODATION would LOVE the opportunity to show you around our amazing Student accommodation too! We work really hard to make sure our homes are the best so if you are coming to an open day, be sure to let us know so we can arrange this with you. Imagine getting ALL your accommodation sorted out before you even come for your first phase! That’s REALLY organised!

At the careers day you’ll be able to:

  • Speak to representatives from all the major shipping companies about the various employment options – they’ll also be offering sponsorship to interested students

  • Chat with College staff to learn more about the courses offered in house and by Blended Learning

  • Take a look around our campus and explore the facilities

  • Witness fire-fighting and pyrotechnics demonstrations and a survival demonstration in the offshore training pool
