    Hi Uli, two years ago I was a student at the second year of the course offered at Southampton Institute. I had three German mates, the three of them graduated (I broke up). You might be able to get in touch with them through Stephen Wallis at the Southampton Institute. I don't say that they will convince you to study there, it's just that they might have different opinions that the two guys you spoke with. Two of them did a few years of boatbuilding before taking the course.

    Personally, I would go for an HND (if it's in the UK) or a more general Naval Architecture degree.
