Springdale Academy of Maritime Education and Training Trust (SAMET), INDIA

www.sametindia.com


Principal’s warm welcome I would like to offer all Merchant Navy and Management aspirants a very warm welcome on behalf of Springdale Academy of Maritime Education and Training Trust (SAMET), situated in Bhubaneswar, Orissa. Springdale Academy of Maritime Education and Training is the first maritime institute of its kind located in the eastern zone of India which has been set up with the prime aim of providing maritime education and training to mercantile seafarers in direct association with some of the renowned and prestigious maritime colleges/ universities in the United Kingdom. We started in March 2009 with a continuous 6 weeks preparatory OOW course (Pre-HND in Nautical Science) throughout the year to help direct entry deck cadets and ratings to gain knowledge and practice in chart work, passage planning, practical navigation, tides and stability in an endeavour to facilitate their OOW Course in maritime institutes in the U.K. This course has established a high level of confidence and motivated individuals, enabling them to have a clear understanding of the syllabus, thereby assisting them in appearing for the Safety papers which have been a big hurdle for many in the past. The feedback that we have received from our past five batches who have gone through SAMET, has been very rewarding and positive in every respect. We are starting HND Nautical science, HND Marine Engineering, Maritime Management, EOOW, IT and MBA courses shortly. We are one of the very few institutions assuring our maritime students guaranteed guided training on board ships, which is a mandatory requirement for getting watch keeping license in nautical sciences or marine engineering anywhere in the world. The academy is committed to providing its students with, a future. “Come join us with an assurance that we will help you shape your future by leading you in the right direction.” Best Wishes Principal SAMET

Merchant Navy encompasses many and varied shipping companies with vessels ranging from 500 to 300,000 tonnes in size. The ships constitute a vital part of the world economy, carrying oil, containers, refrigerated cargo, coal, ore, grain, timber, cars, steel and a thousand other products to keep nations fed and industry supplied. Other commercial activities include cruise liners and passenger/ vehicle ferries, cable laying and scientific vessels studying the seabed. As a deck officer and eventually as Captain of one of these vessels you would be responsible for the safe navigation and delivery of cargo or let the passengers travel to their final destination. You as a ship’s officer will be part of a small vital team in charge of millions of sterling pounds worth of sophisticated vessel and cargo. The course is designed to be integrated with professional short courses and eighteen months guided ship onboard training at sea so that, after three years, the successful student will have not only obtained a Certificate of Higher Education (CertHE) in Nautical Science but also a MCA certified Officer of Watch (OOW) Certificate of Competency (COC). This is the initial qualification for an officer to be in independent charge of navigational watch on a commercial vessel anywhere in the world. After further sea time and exams a Chief Mate and Master Mariner certificates can be obtained.”

Working while studying in the UK The rules about travelling to the UK as a student, and the hours of work an individual on student visa can do while in the UK, were in the process of changing when this prospectus was being written. For the latest information, please refer to the UK Border Agency website: www.bia.homeoffice.gov.uk For latest information on Visa, Work and Paid opportunities while a student is in the UK, please speak to our Admissions team, but below is some general information about going to the UK on student Visa.

Earn While You Learn Citizens of the 27 European Union countries (plus many of their dependent territories, and Norway, Iceland, Switzerland, and Liechtenstein) are eligible for free entry to London and sign up as a student on almost exactly the same basis as UK citizens (Provided they have enough money not to be a burden on the state and obey the law put forth by British Government). Citizens of different other countries apart from those mentioned above need an entry clearance and/ or a visa. The Border Agency website gives detailed information about the procedures to be followed, documents required, fees, and how to sort out specific issues and information about entry clearance. The underlying principles of student entry clearance are straightforward and obvious. United Kingdom welcomes bona fide, hard-working, self-supporting students with open arms, on the other hand it takes plausible actions to avoid illegal entry of individuals on student visa who have the motive to slide into the black economy and cause social problems. An individual on student visa in the United Kingdom, will be permitted to work part-time (i.e. up to 10 hours per week) during the course-work terms, and full time during vacations. In addition, some courses inherently include periods of full or parttime work experience which may be either paid or unpaid. The British Government has announced the national minimum wage rate for 2009/ 2010 effective from 1 October 2009, for adults (paid to workers aged 22 and over) to be ÂŁ5.80 per hour which an increase in 1.2% over previously offered wage of ÂŁ5.73 per hour.
