Welcome to the Royal New Zealand Navy School to Seas portal

Are you a young woman with an interest in Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths?

New Zealand needs more women in our maritime industry as Engineers, Technicians, Operators and more! You have more choices than you probably realise.  

Could a career in Maritime be the perfect future for you?

We're giving students from around NZ a chance to spend a week onboard with us to find out!

The marine industry offers something for everyone, whether you want to spend your days on the water or keep your feet firmly planted on the shore! Our School to Seas programme is a Navy funded initiative to give you a hands-on experience to find out...  

We are taking Registrations of Interest from young women in Year 13 who are currently studying NCEA Level 3 maths AND science.

Is this you? Register Interest NOW for more info!
