The Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA) has confirmed it will offer grants to contribute to the tuition fee for MLA College distance learning programmes in Sustainable Maritime Operations for eligible participants.
The Sustainable Maritime Operations programme offers qualifications at BSc, BSc (Hons), PGCert, PGDip and MSc level and funding can be obtained for any of these courses.
The MPA is able to offer financial support to students through its Maritime Cluster Fund, which has been set up to facilitate growth of Singapore’s maritime cluster by supporting the industry’s efforts to develop its workforce, grow business and improve productivity.
“Opening up opportunities for the development of marine professionals is hugely important and I am delighted that the MPA is supporting the maritime future of the region in this way. Offering students funding also affirms the efficacy of these distance learning programmes in upskilling the current workforce to a high standard.” David Loosley, Chief Executive, IMarEST.
The MCF Training Grant is available for eligible participants for the May 2018 and October 2018 intake of Sustainable Maritime Operations students. Please refer to www.mpa.gov.sg/mcf for information. All application forms must reach the MCF secretariat at least 30 days before the start of the course.
