Graduate with real work experience
This varies for all courses but generally, for those starting out in cadet programmes, no seatime is required. For all other commercial and foreign going tickets you should either contact the New Zealand Maritime School for further guidance or visit the Maritime New Zealand (MNZ) website at www.mnz.govt.nz.
All decisions on eligibility are made by Maritime New Zealand who are responsible for the verification of all seatime for MNZ courses. Candidates should apply directly to MNZ to have their seatime verified but can check with the New Zealand Maritime School in the first instance if unsure about how much seatime is required for a specific course.
A number of programmes are offered in a modular format so it is possible for students to attend for periods of time and return to work before returning to study further at a later date. Depending on the programme, modules may be offered more than once in a year for further flexibility. Some shipping and freight business courses are offered as either full-time or distance learning formats but students should check with Ask Me! as to their suitability.
Please contact our friendly Ask Me! team to hold a place on a course, but your place will not be confirmed until an enrolment form is received from you with supporting documentation.
Enrolment is generally arranged when you book onto a course and must be completed before attendance at a course. In the case of ancillary courses where there are limited spaces available, you may have to book and pay well in advance to hold your place.

For international students, payment must be made in order to obtain a visa. Please contact our International team for more information.
