To get onshore you've got to get all your tickets, I've a few friends who work offshore. It's all about getting your first trip out, even if its as the pot wash in the kitchen. Adecco where taking on for the rig kitchens.

Then I suppose you'd have to try and get a labourer or a mates position and work up.

Perhaps volunteer with an onshore team whilst your studying, to gain the experience to transfer offshore in a year or so.

All the best.
