MARINA Accredited Maritime Schools (S.Y. 2015 – 2016)

In our previous post, Top 18 Maritime Schools in the Philippines for 2015, we shared the Philippine maritime schools ranking based on the data gathered by FindUniversity.ph on previous board exams conducted by the PRC. But currently the management and regulation of our maritime sector is already under MARINA, including the examinations previously done by the PRC. So in order to uphold quality education in the country, the agency released a list of MARINA accredited maritime schools.

The list of maritime schools or MHEI (Maritime Higher Education Institutions) that is recognized or accredited by MARINA to offer BS Marine Transportation and BS Marine Engineering courses aims to guide students in choosing their schools wisely. This means that if your school is one among the list below, your school passed the standards required to produce quality seafarers.
