AMET is in collaboration with Glasgow College of Nautical Studies (The city of Glasgow college formerly known as Glasgow college of nautical studies, UK) to conduct the Higher National Diploma Courses in two parts, the first year at AMET and the second year at City of Glasgow College, UK, Glasgow. Glasgow College of Nautical Studies (City of Glasgow College, UK) came into existence in 1968. It is situated on the South bank of the river Clyde, close to the center of the city of Glasgow, in Scotland U.K. The College prides itself on the quality of the education and training it provides. This training is valued for what it leads to, rather than solely being an end in itself, a fact that is exemplified by their courses in Maritime Studies, Engineering and Telecommunication.
AMET University has a 18 year old relationship with City of Glasgow College, UK and thousands of graduates have come out of this association.
The College, deservedly, has an international reputation in Nautical Studies, with students attending classes from all over the United Kingdom and abroad. The College has a Hall of Residence (hostel) with over 200 rooms. Their courses combine theory with hands-on experience in a well-equipped workshop. They also provide the full range of preparatory courses for the Maritime and Coastguard Agency’s Certificates of Competency for Marine Engineering and Deck Officers. The awarding body for the Higher National Diploma Courses that we are conducting in collaboration with GCNS is the Scottish Qualifications Authority (SQA) and its rules and regulations govern the conduct of the courses and the final award. The college has won a prestigious award form LKE Scottish Council for development and industry (SCDI) for ‘Outstanding International achievement in Scotland’s Colleges’. The award was presented to Calum Maclean at he SCI annual dinner and International Awards events at the Edinburgh International conference centre.
