Employment opportunities

There is a lot involved in the HSE Professional SCUBA Course including hard work and commitment as well as the financial implications. So why should I do this? 

When you graduate you’re up against other students who also have the same degree as you, however you may have other skills that set you apart and make you stand out from the crowd:

  • HSE Professional SCUBA Qualification
  • First aid at work and Oxygen administration
  • Undertaken a module in specific dive sampling and survey techniques
  • Project work experience 
  • Understanding of the paperwork that goes into a diving project – Project Plans and Risk Assessment
  • Leadership and team work skills
  • Adaptability 
After graduating students have gone on to various career paths across a range of disciplines including:

  • British Antarctic Survey
  • Marine Biological Association
  • National Marine Aquarium
  • Natural England
  • Red 7 Marine
  • Sonardyne International Ltd
  • Subsea 7
