Career/Course Advisers

Not every one can tell where he or she rightly fits in at once and therefore may need some guidance.

GMA operates a career advisory center for students or would be students.

Sometimes one might want to rub mind with experts, who can properly direct as to which career in Shipping or the Maritime Industry to follow, or a student might have problems with his or her courses.

This center is just right for that purpose and it is free.

Counseling Center

In GMA we are interested in the well-being of students. Studying in school can be stressful. And sometimes, it could be psychological (mental or emotional) distress which may interfere with the student’s academic studies.

For this, the student might need some counseling to get the student happily back to study.

GMA counselors are professional and as such, they take students concerns seriously and maintain the strictest level of confidentiality.

Therefore if any student feels depressed (miserable, unhappy, sad, dejected or down), worried (anxious, troubled, upset or restless), stressed (tense) please do not hesitate to see the school counselors as soon as possible.

Code of Ethics

The credibility of any institution of learning rests not just with the standard of education provided by the institution, but with the ethics displayed by the students who have passed through the institution.

GMA owes it to her students to maintain a high level of integrity and ethical standards at all times. While providing students with a high standard of maritime education, we inculcate moral principles in them which help them to achieve personal growth and self-discipline.

Students are expected to give themselves to learning, so as to be able to sit for exams with confidence and pass with excellent grades. Cheating at any level during examinations is not acceptable.

Our training ensures that students are able to independently practice their field after graduation. Thus students are expected to attend lectures regularly and attentively, do their assignments or test and pass their exams.

We ensure that any form of cheating is dealt with swiftly and decisively in order to maintain the integrity of the Institution.

Students are to abide by the rules and regulations of the institute throughout their programmes of study. Failure to do so will attract the appropriate disciplinary measure stipulated in the school’s rules and regulations.
