Ocean College offers extracurricular learning aboard the PELICAN OF LONDON and a lot of land-based educational expeditions.

 

During the six-month trip, Ocean College relocates school to the Atlantic Ocean. The students become the voyage crew and participate in running every aspect of the ship. This experience brings challenges that encourage personal development: 24/7 teamwork, reliability and social responsibility which foster self-control and resilience.

 

An individual coaching concept as well as the integration of external practitioners and experts underline the claim: beyond school.
