World Maritime University (WMU)
The World Maritime University has a proven track record in offering programmes by distance learning, designed to offer flexibility to meet the educational needs of maritime professionals, organizations and administrations, and to build maritime capacity globally. Our distance-learning programmes are an indispensable investment for our students and a significant contribution to meeting the need for expertise across the international maritime community.
The distance learning programmes offer a blend of academic theory and business practice. WMU offers two International Maritime Law programmes, an LLM and a Postgraduate Diploma, in partnership with Lloyd’s Maritime Academy (LMA).
Do you have what it takes?
The basic entrance requirement is a Bachelor’s degree. Non-graduates with approved professional qualifications or who have sufficient professional experience may also be considered. The normal definition of “sufficient professional experience” for all Postgraduate Diploma programmes is defined as responsible, managerial experience over a period of at least five years’ duration. Competence in English is required, as evidenced by a standard, internationally acceptable examination of English.
Fees for the programmes cover, as appropriate, study materials, core textbooks, recorded lectures, seminars, scheduled examinations, tutorial support and feedback as well as WMU e-library access. The fees do not include the costs of personal travel and accommodation for the seminars, examination or graduation. Participants are responsible for the costs of any special arrangements they may request, such as an alternative examination location.
