IMarEST launched a Scholarship scheme for students enrolling either on the Sustainable Maritime Operations or the Hydrographic Academy degree courses provided by MLA College.

The scholarships are designed to help students from any country who want to further their career by achieving a Plymouth University qualification though MLA College but need assistance with the financial costs involved. As a maritime professional body and learned society, IMarEST aims to help all of those who wish to develop their professional career with a recognised qualification. However, it is recognised that a high quality education is not affordable for all and so this bursary scheme has been started to start to address these inequalities.

Applications for a reduction on course fees are welcomed with immediate effect. These apply to either the post-graduate courses or the undergraduate degrees. Each application will be assessed individually on its merits and an award made for a reduction in the overall course fees. Scholarships will be available for up to 30% of costs at the discretion of the decision committee. There is a limited availability for scholarships for our next academic year, and they will be awarded on a ‘first come first served’ basis.

To apply please contact MLA College directly in the first instance, speak to Lucille on +44 1752 764889 or email
