World Maritime University visit
On 14th June, UK P&I Club hosted a contingent of graduate students from the World Maritime University (WMU) for a day that included P&I talks, tours of the Lloyds Building and networking.
Claims handlers from across the Syndicates took the time to provide the students with short introductions on various aspects of Club cover and answer any questions they may have. The students, many of whom are sponsored by their Governments to undertake the WMU's Masters Programme, are coming to the end of a year-long study.
The Club is pleased to again have had the opportunity to host the WMU and wish the students the best of luck in their future endeavours.
