Education Partnership with Marine School in the Philippines
"Establishment of "K" LINE CLASS in Cristal e-College"

"K" Line group is pleased to announce that we have finally concluded an MOA contract with "Cristal e-College" which is a private Merchant Marine Academy with scholarship program in the Philippines. We, the "K" Line group, have already introduced various cadet / scholarship programs as follows:

  • Scholarship program at various schools
  • Bridge Program (for technical university graduates to obtain marine license)

In Addition, our strong partnership with "Cristal e-College" expands our "K" Line education system in the Philippines, making it even more solid. Furthermore, we will provide seafarers with more efficient training according to "K" Line's original philosophy.

With this tie-up, we have carried out "K" Line Group's original selective examination for students (with approx. 600 applicants) who will graduate from high schools across the Philippines, and 24 scholars who have already passed it and will enter the engine department course of "Cristal e-College" in June 2008. We are planning to accept 48 scholars every year (24 each for navigation department and engine department) from all over the Philippines after 2009.

"K" Line is the first shipping company to exchange MOA for scholarships with Cristal e-College. "K" Line will enforce the partnership and educate students with "K" Line's original program to assist them to become future efficient officers on "K" Line's fleet.
