Videotel CBT to count towards university degrees

Videotel has announced a partnership with the Marine Learning Alliance (MLA), a UK-based marine industry education and training company, to award credits toward a bachelor’s or master’s degree in science (BSc or MSc) to seafarers who have completed certain Videotel courses.

{mprestriction ids="1,2"}The MLA, part of the Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology (IMarEST), issues degrees through the UK’s Plymouth University, and has recently launched a Sustainable Maritime Operations package of programmes for a BSc Honours or MSc degree.

MLA is revising its academic entry criteria so that individuals applying to the Sustainable Maritime Operations programme who have completed Videotel courses can be given credit for prior learning where appropriate. The arrangement will involve a career consultation between an applicant and one of the MLA admissions tutors.

“Our new Sustainable Maritime Operations focus is ideal for seafarers wishing to transition ashore. Working with a quality training provider like Videotel means that we can offer students exemption from particular modules so long as they have proof of any relevant training programmes taken,” said Dr Richard Thain, chief executive and academic director of the MLA.{/mprestriction}
