Postgraduate Sponsorship Opportunity at the HNDC, Athens
In furtherance of the Association’s Board of Directors’ desire to continue supporting relevant maritime education and to assist Members, the Association is pleased to advise that funds have again been made available by the Association to sponsor the fees of two students wishing to study for an MA in Applied Strategy and International Security at the Hellenic National Defence College in Athens.
To obtain sponsorship, candidates must be working for Members of the Association and work in or have an interest in maritime security. The course begins in September 2019 and the closing date for applications is 30 June 2019.
This is an exceptional opportunity for two students from the private sector to study for an MA on a course which is normally only available to International Officers and Civil Servants. The course is accredited by the University of Plymouth.
A former student, from a Member’s office, wrote:
“The course proved to be interesting, inspiring and totally hands on in matters of security”, and, “The programme provided a most welcome instruction in understanding, appreciating and addressing security issues as well as comprehending in depth international security aspects. The teaching environment was interactive, stimulating, multi-national and effective” and “The TMSA impact in the tanker industry makes the programme a most welcome addition in their TMSA arsenal.”
Further details can be found in the course brochure here. More information can be obtained from either Dr. Georgios Mourtos or Dr. Fotios Moustakis, whose contact details appear in the course brochure.
The first step for any prospective candidate with the required qualifications and experience, who wishes to apply for one of the two sponsorship places, is to submit a request to the Association.
Requests advising the candidate’s name, company, address, present position / occupation and a brief supporting statement should be emailed to the Managers’ Agents:
