Ques. Indian Maritime University (IMU): How do I get sponsorship for DNS Nautical Science?

Last updated on July 1st, 2021

Ans. DNS is one of the maritime courses that offers the chance to win sponsorship. The application process for DNS sponsorship begins in early March, as the IMU CET is held in June, followed by the admissions process in July, and the course begins in August. Candidates who pass the CET must complete 18 months of sea service in order to qualify for sponsorship. Since sponsorship is awarded solely on the basis of merit, it is critical for students and guardians to avoid phoney companies that promise sponsorship in exchange for money. Checking whether or not legal entities obey DG Shipping guidelines is the best way to learn about them.
