Curriculum and degrees

The first three years of training (semesters one through six) are identical for all students. They take place in Marseille Campus. The classes consist of theory, real installations and simulator training in technical and scientific sectors relating to maritime commerce and to the propulsion system and energy production of a merchant ship.
After obtaining essential certification (fire-fighting, medical and survival training), students will board ships each year, thus practicing the knowledge they gained and discovering maritime life.

The French Maritime Academy organizes « Meetings with Shipowners » days in order to help each student find a ship to board. The French Maritime Academy actively supports each student's search.
