Marine Science

Cornwall’s college of the ocean…

We are located in the heart of one of the most biologically diverse marine regions in the world. With rocky shores, mudflats, maerl and seagrass beds and a coastline that supports internationally important marine wildlife. There really is no better place to turn your passion for the ocean into a career. We offer specialist full-time courses for those leaving school as well as a foundation degree route in partnership with the University of Plymouth.

Featured course

HNC/FdSc Operational Yacht Science

Level 4 • Full-time • Falmouth Marine School


This programme is designed for those who aspire to be the future crew, bosuns officers and captains of the superyacht sector. It is designed to run alongside relevant Royal Yachting Association (RYA) and Maritime and Coastguard Agency (MCA) awards, to give deeper knowledge and understanding of the topics, and to give you more choice and an edge for your future career choices. It is run in partnership with UKSA in Cowes, Isle of Wight, as part of their Professional Yacht Cadetship. The cadetship requires a minimum of three years commitment to training, with phases of study on the Isle of Wight as well as periods of working onboard superyachts around the world. You will be required to make a Professional Yacht Cadetship application to UKSA, followed by a two day selection in Cowes, Isle of Wight. On successful completion of the one year HNC, you will gain direct entry onto the second year of the programme, allowing you to gain an FdSc Operational Yacht Science qualification. This programme does not follow the traditional academic year as it is designed around the superyacht season. It is studied in intensive blocks of time at UKSA and supported through Moodle (our virtual learning platform). There are additional costs for this programme to cover the cost of the Cadetship. You may be able to get help with this, contact us for more information. Time spent working on board yachts in between phases of study at UKSA are fully paid periods of employment. Earning on average €2,000 a month (Deckhand).
