Landing School continues study-abroad program


The Landing School announced it is continuing its partnership with Southampton Solent University, offering Landing School yacht design students the opportunity to study abroad and earn a bachelor’s degree.

The yacht design program at The Landing School is part of an articulation agreement with Southampton Solent in the United Kingdom. Southampton Solent offers one of only two bachelor’s degrees in small craft design available in the world, the bachelor’s of engineering in yacht and powercraft craft design.

Graduates of The Landing School’s yacht design program who achieve a final grade-point average of 2.4 or better are entitled to advanced placement in the program, which means they can complete a bachelor’s degree in three years.

Since the partnership began in 2009, six Landing School students have graduated from the Southampton Solent program.

“This partnership offers an unprecedented opportunity for Landing School students to obtain an internationally recognized yacht design degree,” Steve Dalzell, current Landing School yacht design instructor and former Southampton Solent faculty member, said in a statement.

“Better still, students have the opportunity to network with a global group of fellow yacht designers, which provides them with job opportunities that reach far beyond the United States.”
