IUMI bursary for the now CII accredited WMU postgrad programme to go to Roshan Kumar from India

It doesn’t happen often that a student scores nearly 100% in an exam. Roshan Kumar, Assistant Manager at The New India Assurance Company, did just that and achieved the highest mark in IUMI’s Cargo Exam with 98%.

Successful candidates of the IUMI exams are invited to apply for a bursary for the World Maritime University’s (WMU) postgraduate programme in Marine Insurance Law & Practice. As part of IUMI’s MOU with the WMU, IUMI awards the bursary worth US$ 8,750.00 to one candidate annually. This year the successful applicant, Roshan Kumar, convinced IUMI’s Education Forum thanks to his outstanding result in the Cargo Exam but also due to his academic background holding a BSc in Maritime Science as well as his career as a seafarer. It was an extremely difficult decision to make for the members of the Education Forum given the outstanding pool of applications received for the bursary.

A further incentive for students who wish to enrol for the WMU’s postgrad diploma will be the newly acquired CII accreditation which lends additional credibility to this high-profile academic programme.  Interested students can still enrol for the academic year 2021.

Congratulations to Roshan Kumar and best of luck for his studies!
