Oceanid Programme

Background

Helping women help the ocean

Open to women aged 18 to 23, the Oceanid programme offers unmatched action-learning experiences that develop personal skills and professional competences.

Drawing on the inspiring and healing properties of the ocean to build self-worth, humility, and resilience, the Oceanid programme is a rewarding and intense training that equips the students to take on future leadership roles in seafaring professions.

Designed to develop the student as a whole-person , the Oceanid programme offers a stimulating and supportive environment to complete the intense 13-month syllabus. Unlike other maritime education, the programme blends several disciplines and learning methods to create memorable learning-in-action moments.

Trained by thematic experts and qualified professionals, supported by dedicated tutors and coaches, and mentored by a network of international host families, the Oceanid students are empowered to fulfil their true potential and provided with:

• The experience and qualifications of Yachtmaster Ocean for vessels < 24m;
• The technical knowledge of Master of vessels < 200gt, or OOW on yachts < 500gt;
• The foundational understanding of issues affecting ocean and women in maritime;
• The personal skills essential for effective career progression in the maritime;
• The advocacy message and mindset to promote ocean protection.

As the Oceanid programme provides a personalized learning and caring environment, it is also suited for women who need specific support in the face of life difficulties .

For underprivileged students from the global south who cannot afford the full programme fee, the Women+Sea initiative offers some scholarships. [Learn more]
