If you are living near one of Europe’s busiest ferry ports, with dynamic and developing cruise,
cargo and marina businesses. If you are enthusiastic and looking for a great start to a
successful career, you are in the right place.
We offer bursaries of up to £3,000 per academic year for local people who commence

or marine, engineering to accounting, economics, human resource and business
management and many other disciplines). 
The next start date is September 2019, with the potential for ongoing funding throughout
your chosen degree programme, depending on satisfactory progress. 
The scheme also includes invaluable work experience at the Port, and for the right people
there could be an exciting career opportunity at the end of it. 
All that we ask is that you: 

  • Are aged 18 – 24 

  •  Live within the post code bands CT14 to CT17 

  •  Will be entering full time study in September 2019

 You will also be expected to send a personal statement (no more than 1,000 words)

will benefit the Port of Dover.
