Course Content

Established in 1970 by Galbraith's Limited to provide a practical insight into the shipping industry, the Galbraith's Shipping Course offers a unique opportunity for individuals embarking on; or looking to expand, their knowledge of this fascinating and diverse business sector. Delegate numbers are kept low to allow more personal tuition, if required, and consequently places are limited. If you are involved in shipowning, shipbroking, marine insurance, maritime law, marine finance and accountancy this Course will be invaluable for you.

The Course contains a wealth of practical information which would take years to acquire through day-to-day experience. Delegates are drawn from around the world and from a wide range of companies offering plenty of networking opportunities.

Where you will stay

Ashridge House is situated 35 minutes by train from London in beautiful, wooded grounds outside of the town of Berkhamsted. The business school is housed in a stunning neo-gothic mansion built between 1808 and 1814. Each delegate will have their own bedroom with ensuite bathroom, TV, telephone and wifi. Leisure periods are programmed each day to allow you, if you wish, the opportunity to take advantage of the superb leisure facilities including tennis, squash, golf, swimming and the fitness centre.
