Teaching quality

Maritime University of Szczecin is a holder of Accreditations for Marine Education Entities attesting to compliance of our teaching process with teaching and training requirements imposed by the STCW Convention which defines international standards of training and certification for seafarers. It means that graduates of our maritime studies are eligible to apply for certificates of competency and undertake officer positions aboard any ship in any place of the world.

For example, as a graduate from navigation faculty at the Maritime University of Szczecin, your diploma will be recognised worldwide because, due to international law, your qualifications will be the same as of any other graduate of such faculty around the world. After four years of studying at Maritime University you will become a deck officer and a Bachelor of Science at the same time. The advantage you gain when studying at our University is that with our diploma you can already advance in your sea-going career past the rank of officer of the watch (OOW). To do that with other universities you need to complete graduate maritime studies.

Additionally, all degree programmes (both sea-going and shore-based) conducted by the University have received a positive review from the Polish Accreditation Committee (PKA).

At our University we believe practical training to be of core significance, which is particularly important when it comes to marine studies. Our students do their work placements both at sea and on shore, depending on their major.
