As anyone who knows about Merchant navy training in the UK. You will know that you get sponsored your way through the training programme. your sponsors pay for all your college fees and provided your sea going training part of your course.
My sponsorship is provided by a company called GulfMark UK, though Clyde Marine training.
My sea time will more than likely be spent onboard the company fleet of vessel in the North Sea.
I am cadet at GulfMark and Clyde Marine training, this is my opinion and is not the opinion of GulfMark
