Feedback is a tool that can be used to give students the confirmation of their accomplishments , helping them to increase understanding of the results of a performance and to alert students if change is required for future performance. Other studies and reports regarding clinical practice in education has shown that students feel that feedback has good impact on learning and positive effects such as enhanced self-confidence. Onboard training forms a major part of the education at the four-year nautical science education in Kalmar, in four years, one year is spent on board ships. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to find out how students at the four-year nautical science program in Kalmar felt that they receive feedback after completing on board training and how they wish that such feedback would be given. Six students were interviewed, three from grade one and three from grade three. The interviews were directed to an open form with a low degree of standardization. The results showed that all respondents felt they would prefer feedback from the school, even though all of them felt they had received good feedback on board the ships. The students would like to be given feedback by mentoring from other students during training, group discussions after on board training or short individual meetings between representative from the school and the student after completing on board training. All of the respondents felt that feedback is important to be able to learn from on board training and to know how to prepare for the next on board training. The study also revealed that students at the four-year nautical science program would like to gain more confirmation of what they are supposed to perform and if good results are obtained after completing on board training.
