AMC Seafaring/Industry Courses

The Australian Maritime College (AMC) is an institute of the University of Tasmania. The AMC specializes in maritime training and caters for those individuals who wish to work or are already working in the maritime industry.

The AMC provides training in two specific streams:

  • Degree/bachelor courses – which include undergraduate or post graduate degrees.
  • Seafaring/industry courses – which include ocean and seafaring courses classed as Diplomas, Advanced Diplomas, Certificates and Pre-vocational (Vocational courses include Deck Watchkeeper, Mate/Masters).

If you are studying within the seafaring or industry stream at the Newnham campus you will need to apply for accommodation online by creating an account, and completing an application for “AMC Seafaring Vocational Courses”. Seafaring and Industry students have designated blocks assigned to them at Investigator Hall – at present they are unable to access rooms at Leprena or Kerslake. 

Current Industry fees can be viewed on our fees and charges page. If you are company sponsored (i.e. your company is paying your residential fees and meal costs) please provide your company contact details when making your booking. If you are not company sponsored you will need to pay a $250 security deposit and two weeks rent prior to arrival. Rent is due fortnightly – you can arrange for a direct debit or pay via BPay or in person at the administration office at Newnham. Stays for up to five weeks need to be paid upfront prior to arrival.

When we offer you a placement, you will be asked to accept and agree to a number of conditions inline with our Accommodation Services Residency Agreement. This agreement outlines the terms and conditions of your stay in residence – please take the time to read this document as completing the Acceptance step during the online application process will require you to agree to the terms outlined.
