Applications for the 2023-2024 class of the MSc Maritime Science are open!

The Master of Science in Maritime Science is an inter-university programme developed by Ghent University (UGent) and the Vrije Universiteit Brussel (VUB). It aims at students from diverse academic backgrounds, with a common passion for the maritime sector (be they from a scientific, economic, legal or other background) and who already hold a Master degree. People working in the sector itself may also benefit from the programme to enhance their knowledge and skills.

The programme itself comprises three main pillars: a technical/general pillar, an economic/logistic pillar and a legal pillar. It follows a multidisciplinary approach which makes it unique in the global academic landscape. As the maritime sector operates in a highly international environment, all courses are offered in English. The programme is taught by experts with international acknowledgements and experience. The strong interaction with the maritime sector through guest lectures and a significant amount of field trips (to ports like Ghent, Antwerp and Rotterdam, as well as a multiday trip to London) provides students with up-to-date information on ports and shipping and a global view of the maritime world.

You can find all relevant information on the website of our study programme as well as the Ghent University programme page.

We look forward to receiving your applications!
