Many of the major British shipping companies and recruitment and training representatives who recruit cadets and crew will be there to give information about the career opportunities they offer. Our teaching staff are also on hand to talk about the academic side of training.
You can talk to our officer cadets, who are often happy to share their first hand experience of the training and life as a cadet, both at Warsash and on board ship.
You're welcome to tour the new St Mary's campus, and you'll also be able to visit the engineering workshop. There will be presentations and maritime safety talks, as well as demonstrations in the electronic chart display and electro-technical simulation suites. The David Moxon student residences - where cadets will be accommodated - will also be open to visitors for guided tours.
