In March 2020, the World Maritime University (WMU), established within the framework of the International Maritime Organization (IMO), and IUMI signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) regarding their mutual interests in the field of maritime and oceans, the development of expertise, the protection of the marine environment and the building of capacity worldwide.
Areas of agreement within the MoU include IUMI’s cooperation in the delivery of WMU’s Marine Insurance Law & Practice Postgraduate Diploma programme. This long-established programme has been comprehensively updated and revised for students joining in 2020. It offers an outstanding academic foundation for professionals in the marine insurance industry to develop their expertise and their careers, as well as professionals planning to move into the field of marine insurance.
The MoU also provides for an IUMI bursary for the WMU Postgraduate Diploma in Marine Insurance Law & Practice. Candidates who successfully pass the IUMI hull exam or the IUMI cargo exam are invited to apply for the bursary which is worth US$ 8,750.
