Correspondence and Distance Learning Department

  Dear students and enrollees of Kherson State Maritime Academy! We are glad to welcome you on the website of part-time and distance education department! Department of part-time and distance education was founded in Kherson State Maritime Academy in 2004. Training of students on part-time form course of study in KSMA is carried out in accordance with the Law of Ukraine "On Higher Education" and "The Regulation on Correspondence Education in the KSMA".

  More than 1700 graduates of part-time department work for ship companies, branch enterprises and cooperate with shipping and crewing companies of different countries. Actually practicing sea captains, senior mechanics and electrical mechanics are involved in teaching process. Training sessions are closely related to the real working conditions of future specialists. Computers and simulators make it possible to develop practical skills in running of maritime equipment, thereby greatly improving the efficiency and quality of the educational process. The part-time and distance education department trains maritime specialists who are competitive in the world labor market. The organization of the educational process is carried out by educational departments of Kherson State Maritime Academy. The program of training for part-time students quite coincides with the training program for day-time students: the list of disciplines, the total number of hours, forms of final control of knowledge. The difference is in the distribution of hours between the classroom and independent forms of work of cadets (students), as well as absence of activities according to ECTS. Taking into account specifics of students’ activities on the part-time form department and making efforts to retain the contingent, we allow the students who actually work in their specialty to take their session individually.
