Students on the MLA College PGDip Advanced Hydrography for Professionals course, a part-time programme taught through distance learning technology by MLA College (and awarded by Plymouth University) will soon be coming to the end of their studies.
The cohort of distance learners is made up of students studying from a range of different countries worldwide including France, Ghana, China, UK, Norway, Denmark, South Africa, Sri Lanka, Russia, Netherlands, Azerbaijan and Poland.
The students have just completed their final module, a residential practical course, and will therefore soon be graduating. Some will also be going on to do a Master’s project in order to gain a full MSc Advanced Hydrography for Professionals degree.
“The support from the tutors and all the staff has been fantastic, being able to learn from others and share ideas is just what you want to improve your own professional working practice” Jonas Hansen.
“Being able to put all the theory into practice here in Plymouth has been a massive help to me. Being able to perform different roles in the surveying operations during the practical sessions means I’m upskilling myself and doing things I wouldn’t normally get the chance to do.” Mark Crookes.
“The facilities here at the training academy in Plymouth are world-class, having everything under one roof with easy access to the water and Plymouth Sound where we did all our surveying is such an advantage, it means we are spending more time doing and learning which is exactly the way it should be” Lotte Schuitema.
“I’ve had a great couple of weeks, it’s been intense but thoroughly worth it, the amount we have learnt has been huge and I’m going away with not just knowledge but a sense of achievement” Roshia Briggs.
