International Trade & Maritime Management - combination programme.
The Maritime course is an integral part of international trade since 90% of the worlds trade is moved by ship. So it can be considered as part of a unique programme of international trade and maritime management. There are some parts of the international trade course which are more business focused than commerce based so we have dropped these subjects and replaced them with some general shipping subjects. There are also some shipping/maritime units which are too specialist and may not appeal to the general international trade student.
To summarise this planning please see below:
September 2012 - March 2013 BTEC Level 4 Professional Diploma in International Trade – 3 subjects + 1 shipping subject (4 sessions per week)
(Subjects - International Physical Distribution and Logistics, Trading Environment, International Marketing, Shipping Operations,).
September 2012 - December 2012 BTEC Level 5 Certificate in Maritime Management (4 sessions per week)
(Subjects - International Shipping Law, Marine Insurance, Maritime Management, Shipping Business)
Students must have a good knowledge of the English Language and 4 GCS's or their equivalent. No other formal qualifications are required.
